As discussed earlier, a surviving cell is considered as one that can proliferate indefinitely. In tissue culture this is quantified by the ability to form a colony of a certain size after irradiation (usually 50 cells). Conversely, cell death in this context means that eventually all progeny of an irradiated cell will die. An irradiated cell that is destined to die (not produce a colony) may, however, still proceed through mitosis many times. The resulting daughter cells can die at very different times after irradiation.
The MMR status of cells is therefore of importance for outcome, not for radiotherapy alone, but for combinations of radiotherapy with some chemotherapy or radiosensitizing agents. Nucleotide excision repair copes with bulky lesions, such as those caused by UV light (thymine dimers), and DNA adducts induced by cisplatin. However, as with MMR, knocking out NER genes has, in general, little effect on sensitivity to ionizing radiation, and so no detailed discussion of NER will be included here. There is one situation, however, where NER genes can affect the radiation response.
