error-prone replication in XP?

I'm a biology-student in Germany ..... and I've just one simple question
:) : What is "error-prone replication", especially in context of
The hypermutability of XP variant cells should be correlated with an
error-prone replication of DNA (so I've read in a paper...), but what does
this mean? Is the "reason" for mutations in XP-cells the fact, that the
cell is't able to replicate the DNA with the correct base of the template
or the missing of an excison-repaire of the photoproducts?
..and just one more simple question: Is the error-prone replication in the
context of an SOS-repair the same as in XP-cells?
If you know some reviews which explain error-prone replication
"in general" or if you want to explain me the above context ;)
please mail me (armuelle at namu01.gwdg.de)
