DNA repair in lung cancer: potential not yet reached


DNA repair is critical in maintaining genomic integrity and survival of all cells, and is especially important in the lungs. Lung tissue is exposed to a wide array of exogenous chemicals and insults on a constant basis. Many of these agents are capable of inducing DNA damage and repairing this damage is critical to maintain proper lung function. DNA damage resulting from these agents ranges from double strand breaks, single strand breaks, base damages, bulky adducts, intra- and inter-strand cross links as well as breakdown of replication fork lesions.
