As a UT Dallas student, Rupert said, Sancar successfully purified and described a bacterial enzyme called photolyase
, which is critical to this type of DNA repair.
The formulation is driven by ingredients such as arazine, a patented antioxidant that protects against the harmful effects of free radicals resulting in skin inflammation; L-carnosine, a dipeptide antioxidant that protects protein from glycation and carbonylation; L-ergothioneine, a amino acid antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and offers critical protection to proteins and DNA; photolyase
, a light activated enzyme that helps protect against free radical damage; endonuclease, an enzyme helps protect against free radical damage; and 8-oxoguanine glycosylase, an enzyme that helps protect against guanine oxidation.
An earlier clinical study on Photolyase
, a key component of Celfix DNA[TM] Youth Recovery[TM] Facial Serum by renowned Italian dermatologist, Dr.
The whole cryptochromes family has an N-terminal photolyase
homolyase region (PHR) domain.
In the new study, lead researcher Dongping Zhong and his colleagues used ultra-fast pulses of laser light to spy on a photolyase
while it was healing a strand of DNA.
Increases in recombination were accompanied by strong induction of photolyase
and Rad51 gene expression.
The bacterium Escherichia coli harbors an enzyme called DNA photolyase
, which reverses the photoreaction between two thymines.
Light and dark in chromatin repair: repair of UV-induced DNA lesions by photolyase
and nucleotide excision repair.
is a structure specific DNA binding protein whose specificity is determined by the backbone structure of DNA at the binding site.
Scientists in Dusseldorf, Germany, are testing a new lotion containing an enzyme called photolyase
on patients exposed to UVB (the sun's short-wave radiation).
repair is specific, rapid, efficient, and - like excision repair - relatively error-free.
This product is comprised of a radical scavenger, caffeine, a complex with amino acid salts consisting of sorbitol, arginine-HCl, or-nithine-HCl, tyrosine and Si02, an enzyme photolyase
enclosed in liposomes and UV endonuclease, and an extract from corallina officinalis with propylene glycol.
