The cell has 28 Saif and Diasio several mechanisms for repairing DNA single-strand breaks (26). One such repair mechanism under normal conditions is as follows: neighboring nucleotides are cleaved, DNA polymerase fills in the gap, and DNA ligase seals the new, correct bases (including dTTP) into place. On the other hand, in the case of a high dUTP/dTTP ratio, such as following administration of FdUrd, dUTP will still be favored over dTTP, and this futile cycle of excision and repair would repeat itself.
