(biochemistry)

DNA

deoxyribonucleic acid; a nucleic acid that is the main constituent of the chromosomes of all organisms (except some viruses). The DNA molecule consists of two polynucleotide chains in the form of a double helix, containing phosphate and the sugar deoxyribose and linked by hydrogen bonds between the complementary bases adenine and thymine or cytosine and guanine. DNA is self-replicating, plays a central role in protein synthesis, and is responsible for the transmission of hereditary characteristics from parents to offspring

Thus, our results suggest that the abnormal regulation of NEIL1, NEIL2, and NEIL3 expression is involved in the development of cancer via an increase in the prevalence of somatic mutations, providing a new and important link between abnormalities in the DNA glycosylases NEIL1, NEIL2, and NEIL3 and human cancer.
