Direct Reversal of Base Damage
Perhaps the most frequent cause of point mutations in humans is the spontaneous addition of a methyl group (CH3-) (an example of alkylation) to Cs followed by deamination to a T.
Resemblance between two taxa because one of them has evolved a new character, then lost it again, and the other taxon has never evolved it.

Their reconstructions suggest multiple losses of digits from the manus (hand) with no reversals (as expected), but they found a very different pattern for the pes (foot).

In a reversal of this process, a double-stranded DNA (or RNA, or DNA/RNA) molecule can be heated to break the base pairing and separate the two strands.
(iii) For chemical reactions that are easily reversed at ambient temperatures, the energy required for the reversal is simply low enough that it can be supplied by the heat of the environment (e.g.
