Right column: The A:8-oxo-G base pairs can be recognized by MUTYH, which catalyzes the excision of the wrong A from opposite 8-oxo-G, leading to the formation of an AP site. This AP site is further processed by APE1, which results in a 1 nt gap with 3′OH and 5′dRP moieties. The incorporation of the correct C opposite 8-oxo-G and one more nucleotide is performed by pol λ in collaboration with the cofactors PCNA and RP-A, thus performing strand displacement of the downstream DNA strand. FEN1 cleaves the 5′ flap, leading to a 5′P moiety, which can be ligated by DNA ligase I to yield an intact C:8-oxo-G containing double-stranded DNA. This C:8-oxo-G is then again substrate for OGG1-mediated removal of 8-oxo-G (left column).
