New Special Issue
The maintenance of genome integrity depends upon accurate DNA synthesis during DNA replication, DNA repair, and recombination. Mutagenesis is an active cellular process, and numerous types of mutations and chromosomal rearrangements are the direct result of DNA polymerase errors. The December 2012 Special Issue of Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis presents a collection of original and review articles describing the myriad of DNA polymerases that are required to maintain genome stability. Evidence from several areas of mutagenesis research is presented, all of which suggest that multiple polymerases cooperate in a particular genome maintenance pathway. The issue highlights the importance of DNA polymerases for both generating somatic diversity and maintaining genetic stability, as well as the disease consequences of aberrant DNA polymerase function and/or regulation. The special issue format was inspired by a symposium at the Environmental Mutagen Society’s 2011 Annual Meeting, entitled “The Multiplicity of DNA Polymerases: A Strategy for Maintaining Genome Stability”.
