Modulation of chromatin structure plays an important role in the recruitment and function of DNA repair proteins. CXXC finger protein 1 (Cfp1), encoded by the CXXC1 gene, is essential for mammalian development and is an important regulator of chromatin structure. Murine embryonic stem (ES) cells...
RecN is a highly conserved, SMC-like protein in bacteria. It plays an important role in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks and is therefore a key factor in maintaining genome integrity. The insolubility of Escherichia coli RecN has limited efforts to unravel its function. We overcame this...
Mms1 and Mms22 are subunits of an Rtt101-based E3 ubiquitin ligase required for replication of damaged DNA templates in Saccharomyces cerevisiae . The function and evolutionary conservation of this DNA repair module are unknown. Here we report the characterization of an Mms1 ortholog in...
Mice defective for the Polk gene, which encodes DNA polymerase kappa, are viable and do not manifest obvious phenotypes. The present studies document a spontaneous mutator phenotype in Polk −/− mice. The initial indication of enhanced spontaneous mutations in these mice came from the...
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae , destabilizing telomeres, via inactivation of telomeric repeat binding factor Cdc13, induces a cell cycle checkpoint that arrests cells at the metaphase to anaphase transition—much like the response to an unrepaired DNA double strand break (DSB). Throughout the cell...
The feasibility of introducing point mutations in vivo using single-stranded DNA oligonucleotides (ssON) has been demonstrated but the efficiency and mechanism remain elusive and potential side effects have not been fully evaluated. Understanding the mechanism behind this potential therapy may...
Current data indicate that clustered DNA damage generated by ionizing radiation contains 2–5 damages within 20 bps. The complexity of clustered damage is also believed to increase as the linear energy transfer of the radiation increases. Complex lesions are therefore biologically relevant...
The DNA ligase IV–Xrcc4 complex is responsible for the ligation of broken DNA ends in the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) pathway of DNA double strand break repair in mammals. Mutations in DNA ligase IV (Lig4) lead to immunodeficiency and radiosensitivity in humans. Only partial structural...
Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBS) is characterized by genome instability and cancer predisposition. NBS patients contain a mutation in the NBS1 gene, which encodes the NBS1 component of the DNA double-strand break (DSB) response complex MRE11/RAD50/NBS1. To investigate the NBS phenotype in more...
