    The removal of histones from DNA and their subsequent replacement is likely to be necessary for all processes that require access to the DNA sequence in eukaryotic cells. The histone chaperone chromatin assembly factor 1 (CAF-1) mediates histone H3-H4 assembly during DNA replication and...

    Chromosome end protection is essential for all organisms with linear genomes. Specialized structures, called telomeres, accomplish this protection by forming DNA-protein complexes that hide the natural chromosome ends from the DNA damage machinery. In mammalian cells protection takes place on...

    Functional impairment of DNA damage response pathways leads to increased genomic instability. Here we describe the centrosomal protein CEP152 as a new regulator of genomic integrity and cellular response to DNA damage. Using homozygosity mapping and exome sequencing, we identified CEP152...

  • Non-coding RNAs in DNA damage response. Yunhua Liu; Xiongbin Lu // American Journal of Cancer Research;2012, Vol. 2 Issue 6, p658 

    Genome-wide studies have revealed that human and other mammalian genomes are pervasively transcribed and produce thousands of regulatory non-protein-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), including miRNAs, siRNAs, piRNAs and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). Emerging evidences suggest that these ncRNAs also play a...

  • Safeguarding genetic information in Drosophila. Su, Tin // Chromosoma;Dec2011, Vol. 120 Issue 6, p547 

    Eukaryotic cells employ a plethora of conserved proteins and mechanisms to ensure genome integrity. In metazoa, these mechanisms must operate in the context of organism development. This mini-review highlights two emerging features of DNA damage responses in Drosophila: a crosstalk between DNA...

    Eukaryotic cells have evolved a network of control mechanisms, known as checkpoints, which coordinate cell-cycle progression in response to internal and external cues. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been invaluable in dissecting genetically the DNA damage checkpoint pathway. Recent...
