26559593 This study extends the description of biallelic mutations in NTHL1 beyond the single c.268C-->T,p.Q90* mutation that was observed previously.
26400813 NTH1 polymorphisms may be associated with non-small cell lung cancer pathogenesis.
25938944 A homozygous loss-of-function germline mutation in the NTHL1 gene predisposes to a new subtype of BER-associated adenomatous polyposis and colorectal cancer.
22465744 we demonstrated that hNEIL1 and hNTH1 cleave Oz sites as efficiently as 5-hydroxyuracil sites. Thus, hNEIL1 and hNTH1 can repair Oz lesions

18307537 YB-1 binds specifically to the auto-inhibitory domain of hNTH1, providing a mechanism by which YB-1 stimulates hNTH1 activity.
17923696 These observations suggest that access to sterically occluded lesions entails the partial, reversible unwrapping of DNA from the histone octamer, allowing hNTH1 to capture its DNA substrate when it is in an unwound state.
17150535 The damage specificity of human homologues of Endo III (hNTHl) and Endo VIII (hNEIL1 and hNEIL2) is compared to elucidate the repair role in cells.
16446124 Nth1 released 5R,6S 2'-deoxyribonucleoside diastereoisomer (Tg2) much more rapidly than cis 5S,6R-deoxyribonucleoside diastereoisomer (Tg1) regardless of the opposing purine. Neil1 released Thymine glycol non-stereoselectively.
16111924 hNTH1 plays two roles in the processing of radiation damages: repair of potentially lethal single lesions and generation of lethal double strand breaks at clustered damage sites.
15533839 NTH1 is a DNA glycosylase that excise 5-formyluracil, 5-hydroxymethyluracil and Thymine glycol in human cells.
15358233 search for the factors interacting with NTH1 shows GST-NTH1 fusion protein precipitates proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and p53 as well as XPG from human cell-free extracts
14734554 hNTH1 and hNEIL1 but not hNEIL2 excised the two stereoisomers of thymine glycol (5R-Tg and 5S-Tg), but their isomer specificity was markedly different
14522981 dimerization of hNTH1 involving the N-terminal tail masks the inhibitory effect of this tail and plays a critical role in its catalytic turnover in the cell
12519758 substrate selectivity of mammalian NTH1 and the concomitant selective stimulation of activity by APE1 are indicative of selective repair of oxidative damage in different regions of the genome
12144783 recombinant hNTH1 lacking 55, 72 or 80 residues from the N terminus had four- to fivefold higher activities than the full-length enzyme
11328882 NTH1 is involved in removal of 8-oxoguanine from 8-oxoguanine/guanine mispairs in DNA
