    A new study shows that Fanconi anemia complementation group B is caused by mutations in a previously uncharacterized gene located on the X chromosome. Its unique chromosomal localization identifies FANCB as a potential weak link in a key DNA-repair and tumor-suppressor pathway.

    The vast majority of nervous system neoplasms occur sporadically. However, most adult and pediatric tumors have a hereditary equivalent. These hereditary forms are an invaluable resource in the identification of genes that may be important for sporadic tumor development. In recent years there...

    The helicase-associated endonuclease for fork-structured DNA (Hef) is an archaeabacterial protein that processes blocked replication forks. Here we have isolated the vertebrate Hef ortholog and investigated its molecular function. Disruption of this gene in chicken DT40 cells results in genomic...

    Ovarian tumor cells are often genomically unstable and hypersensitive to cisplatin. To understand the molecular basis for this phenotype, we examined the integrity of the Fanconi anemia-BRCA (FANC-BRCA) pathway in those cells. This pathway regulates cisplatin sensitivity and is governed by the...

  • FANCL, as in ligase. Grompe, Markus // Nature Genetics;Oct2003, Vol. 35 Issue 2, p113 

    Biochemical purification has identified a new component of the Fanconi anemia complex. The protein has ubiquitin ligase activity and may be the long-sought enzyme responsible for monoubiquitination of Fanconi anemia protein FANCD2. Genetic pathways that control genomic stability have long been...

    Interstrand crosslinks covalently link complementary DNA strands, block replication and transcription, and can trigger cell death. In eukaryotic systems several pathways, including the Fanconi Anemia pathway, are involved in repairing interstrand crosslinks, but their precise mechanisms remain...

    Genome instability, primarily caused by faulty DNA repair mechanisms, drives tumorigenesis. Therapeutic interventions that exploit deregulated DNA repair in cancer have made considerable progress by targeting tumor-specific alterations of DNA repair factors, which either induces synthetic...

    Seven Fanconi anemia–associated proteins (FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG and FANCL) form a nuclear Fanconi anemia core complex that activates the monoubiquitination of FANCD2, targeting FANCD2 to BRCA1-containing nuclear foci. Cells from individuals with Fanconi anemia of...

    Specific chromosomal deletions are commonly found in bone marrow cells of children with Fanconi anemia (FA) whose disease has evolved to myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Identical deletions are found in adults with MDS/AML with a history of exposure to alkylating...
