It was studied for human skin fibroblasts, whether the induction or repair of DNA double-strand breaks (dsb) depend on the differentiation status. These studies were performed (a) with a fibroblast strain (HSF1) kept in progenitor state (mitotic fibroblasts, MF) or triggered to premature terminal...
Ku70 and Ku86 together with DNA-PKcs form the DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) complex that is involved in DNA double-strand break repair by nonhomologous end joining. We investigated the effect of Ku86 mutation on intrachromosomal homologous recombination (HR) resulting in deletions in vivo...
