  • 2007), recounting how the viral protein p56 manages to inhibit the activity of the UDG enzyme. (innovations-report.com)
  • Their experiments show that the protein p56 conceals the part of the UDG enzyme that interacts with the damaged DNA so that there is no possibility of attachment. (innovations-report.com)
