5 kilodaltons). Its activation and inhibition spectra were similar to those previously determined for animal polymerase-beta. Therefore, since the structure of polymerase-beta shows significant evolutionary conservation in both plant and animal species and given strong functional correlations among species, polymerase-beta performs a vital role in plants in the repair of newly synthesized DNA just as it does in animal systems.
