Ionizing radiations induce clustered damage sites known to be severely challenging for the cell's repair machinery. In the present study, we have grafted on a biochip four synthetic oligonucleotide duplexes containing either a single 8-oxoguanine, a single 2'-deoxyribose abasic site or two different clustered damages containing these two lesions on opposite strands. Using a SPR imaging-based DNA array, we qualitatively observed the hierarchy of lesion processing by the base excision repair (BER) enzyme Fpg (Formamidopyrimidine (fapy)-DNA glycosylase). We could notably show that Fpg can convert a cluster of lesions into a potentially lethal double strand break (DSB) and demonstrate that SPR imaging is suitable to investigate the incision steps occurring during the repair process.
