• Alexeeva, M., Moen, M.N., Grøsvik, K. et al (2018) Excision of uracil from DNA by hSMUG1 includes strand incision and processing. 

      Moen, Marivi Nabong; Grøsvik, Kristin; Kirpekar, Finn; Tesfahun, Almaz Nigatu; Ruoff, Peter; Klungland, Arne; Bjelland, Svein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-11)
      Uracil arises in DNA by hydrolytic deamination of cytosine (C) and by erroneous incorporation of deoxyuridine monophosphate opposite adenine, where the former event is devastating by generation of C → thymine transitions. ...
    • Alleviation of C⋅C Mismatches in DNA by the Escherichia coli Fpg Protein 

      Tesfahun, Almaz Nigatu; Alexeeva, Marina; Tomkuvienė, Miglė; Arshad, Aysha; Guragain, Prashanna; Klungland, Arne; Klimašauskas, Saulius; Ruoff, Peter; Bjelland, Svein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-06)
      DNA polymerase III mis-insertion may, where not corrected by its 3′→ 5′ exonuclease or the mismatch repair (MMR) function, result in all possible non-cognate base pairs in DNA generating base substitutions. The most ...
