    Irradiation of normal human fibroblasts with UV was shown to increase the frequency of mutations in the mitochondrial DNA. Treatment of the fibroblast culture with a nanoemulsion containing coenzyme Q10 and vitamin E acetate was found to protect the mitochondrial DNA against UV-induced mutations.

    We have previously suggested that the inhibition of RNA polymerase II-mediated transcription after exposure to UV light promotes the accumulation of p53 and the induction of apoptosis (Oncogene 13, 823-831). However, it was not clear whether p53 induction was contributing to apoptosis. Here we...

    Perturbation of DNA replication initiation arrests human cells in G1, pointing towards an origin activation checkpoint. We used RNAi against Cdc7 kinase to inhibit replication initiation and dissect this checkpoint in fibroblasts. We show that the checkpoint response is dependent on three axes...

    The present study highlighted the aromatic-participant interactions in in vivo trimerization of HSF1 and got an insight into the process of HSF1 protecting against apoptosis. In mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs), mutations of mouse HSF1 (W37A, Y60A and F104A) resulted in a loss of trimerization...

    We previously reported that transcription-coupled repair (TCR)-deficient human fibroblasts are extremely sensitive to UV-induced apoptosis and this sensitivity correlated with the induction of the p53 tumour suppressor. However, we have also found that p53 can be protective against UV-induced...

    Following the irradiation of nondividing yeast cells with ultraviolet (UV) light, most induced mutations are inherited by both daughter cells, indicating that complementary changes are introduced into both strands of duplex DNA prior to replication. Early analyses demonstrated that such...

    The human skin is not only a target for the protective actions of melatonin, but also a site of melatonin synthesis and metabolism, suggesting an important role for a local melatoninergic system in protection against ultraviolet radiation (UVR) induced damages. While melatonin exerts many...
