Scientists get first glimpse at how plants, most animals repair UV-damaged DNA

...ort time, there's a danger of the donated electron jumping back to the photolyase enzyme before the repair is done. Zhong's work has revealed how the water in the pocket performs a critical function at this point. When the photolyase enzyme becomes excited, it jostles the water molecules, and that motion w...
