    According to current science, plants and earlier animals use an enzyme called photolyase to repair DNA damage induced by UV-light. But supposedly this particular ability was lost (replaced?) in eutherian mammals. Here, researchers used marsupial-photolyase in human cells and were able to repair DNA:

    So I would think Factor X was involved somehow in altering the course of mammalian photorepair...
