DNA repair: bioinformatics helps reverse methylation damage


Jiricny, J (2002). DNA repair: bioinformatics helps reverse methylation damage. Current Biology, 12(24):R846-R848.

Abstract

Recent work has uncovered a novel DNA repair enzyme: the AlkB protein of Escherichia coli, which oxidises the methyl groups of 1-methyladenine and 3-methylcytosine to hydroxymethyl moieties; the oxidised groups are subsequently released as formaldehyde, regenerating the unmodified bases.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
