    ..After this subpathway-specific initial lesion detection, XPA may function as a common damage verifier and adaptor to the core of the NER apparatus. ..
  2. Vinson R, Hales B. Nucleotide excision repair gene expression in the rat conceptus during organogenesis. Mutat Res. 2001;486:113-23 pubmed
    ..Exposure of the conceptus to a teratogen, 4-OOHCPA, induced malformations without affecting NER transcript levels. Thus, NER gene expression in the conceptus was unresponsive to regulation by DNA alkylation. ..
  3. Ng J, Vermeulen W, van der Horst G, Bergink S, Sugasawa K, Vrieling H, et al. A novel regulation mechanism of DNA repair by damage-induced and RAD23-dependent stabilization of xeroderma pigmentosum group C protein. Genes Dev. 2003;17:1630-45 pubmed
    ..These findings resolve the primary function of RAD23 in repair and reveal a novel DNA-damage-dependent regulation mechanism of DNA repair in eukaryotes, which may be part of a more global damage-response circuitry. ..

    ..CEN2 has been shown to play an important role in centrosome duplication. Thus, those findings suggest that the XPC-CEN2 interaction may reflect coupling of cell division and NER. ..

    ..This function may involve regulation of protein stability via the ubiquitin/proteasome pathway and is not or only in part compensated for by mHR23A. ..

    ..Our results dissect the intricate molecular mechanism of NER and provide insights into a strategy for mammalian cells to survey large genomes to detect DNA damage. ..

    ..All RAD23 derivatives share a ubiquitin-like N-terminus. The nature of the XP-C defect implies that the complex exerts a unique function in the genome-overall repair pathway which is important for prevention of skin cancer. ..
