GO Term Name(GO Accession Number)Term TypeDefinition
nucleotide-excision repair(GO:0006289)biological_processA DNA repair process in which a small region of the strand surrounding the damage is removed from the DNA helix as an oligonucleotide. The small gap left in the DNA helix is filled in by the sequential action of DNA polymerase and DNA ligase. Nucleotide excision repair recognizes a wide range of substrates, including damage caused by UV irradiation (pyrimidine dimers and 6-4 photoproducts) and chemicals (intrastrand cross-links and bulky adducts).


Click on the GO term name to get the PDB entries for which a UniProt entry annotated with this GO term is available. This covers the query level and all lower hierarchical levels.

Click on the GO accession number to get a tree view of the GO hierarchy without information on PDB entries. In this case your query level and all levels of higher hierarchy up to the root level Gene_Ontology (GO:0003673) are displayed.

If you enter the GO tree somewhere and if you want to get a view of the whole tree first click on the GO name. This yields the low-hierarchy part. Then click on the GO accession number of the lowest hierarchical level. This gives a view of the complete tree. Note, that certain GO terms belong to more than one path.
