If a damaged double strand DNA (dsDNA) is not repaired prior to the next round of DNA replication, it provides a damaged (lesioned) DNA template that triggers mutagenic (erroneous) incorporation of nucleotides in the newly synthesized DNA strand through the process of DNA damage bypass (Friedberg et al. 2001).
