editing

a system that has evolved to correct errors occurring during DNA REPLICATION. The DNA POLYMERASE enzymes involved in DNA replication possess an EXONUCLEASE activity, which serves a ‘proofreading’ and ‘editing’ function. Mistakes, in terms of MISMATCH OF BASES, due to the wrong BASE being inserted during replication, are searched for and excised.
