DNA-protein cross-link (DPC) damage is produced by varieties of genotoxic agents such as ionizing radiation, UV light, aldehydes, and some chemotherapeutic compounds. DPCs would be harmful to cells since proteins immobilized on DNA strands could hamper DNA transactions in cells. However, it has not been clarified how DPCs are repaired in cells. In the present study, we prepared DNA substrates containing defined DPCs and tested them for repair enzymes. We also examined the sensitivity of Escherichia coli to DPC-inducing agents.
