Abstract :

Several purine and pyrimidine cyclonucleosides were found to be not recognized by several Escherichia coli and yeast DNA N-glycosylases. Interestingly, a non covalent complex was observed between the Lactoccocus lactis formamido-pyrimidine-DNA glycosylases (Fpg-L1) and the cyclonucleosides. This may provide new information on the mechanism involved in the activity of the latter enzyme.
