Wang Z, Wu X, Friedberg E. Molecular mechanism of base excision repair of uracil-containing DNA in yeast cell-free extracts. J Biol Chem. 1997;272:24064-71 pubmed
..The processing of the 5'-deoxyribose phosphate moieties was found to be a rate-limiting step. During BER of uracil-containing DNA, repair patch sizes of 1-5 nucleotides were detected, with single nucleotide repair patches predominant. ..
