OGG1

Modifications of DNA strands and nucleobases-both induced and accidental-are associated with unfavorable consequences including loss or gain in genetic information and mutations. Therefore, DNA repair proteins have essential roles in keeping genome fidelity. Recently, mounting evidence supports that 8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG), one of the most abundant genomic base modifications generated by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, along with its cognate repair protein 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase1 (OGG1), has distinct roles in gene expression through transcription modulation or signal transduction. Binding to 8-oxoG located in gene regulatory regions, OGG1 acts as a transcription modulator, which can control transcription factor homing, induce allosteric transition of G-quadruplex structure, or recruit chromatin remodelers. In addition, post-repair complex formed between OGG1 and its repair product-free 8-oxoG increases the levels of active small GTPases and induces downstream signaling cascades to trigger gene expressions[1].
