SSA and NHEJ ...what do they mean? - (Sep/03/2007 )


recently, i read a paper about DNA double strand break repair, I try to distinguish between `single-strand annealing[SSA] ` & `non-homologous end joining [NHEJ] `... but still couldn`t comprehend....

I mean, if for SSA, how does DNA anneal? by overhangs or by blunt-ends DNA strand?

i really appreciate anyone who could me understand my paper better.... biggrin.gif




i hope these sites will help you understand.


yes, thanks!

the one with pictures helps a lot, i easily get confused when description is too long...
