Synthetic DNA probes were incubated in human cell extracts to dissect the early step of bulky lesion recognition in the nucleotide excision repair pathway. Excision was induced upon combination of the target adduct with either a two-sided bulge, involving both the damaged sequence and its undamaged partner strand, or a one-sided bulge, affecting exclusively the undamaged complementary sequence. Surprisingly,...
