MRE11 meiotic recombination 11 homolog A

This gene encodes a nuclear protein involved in homologous recombination, telomere length maintenance, and DNA double-strand break repair. By itself, the protein has 3' to 5' exonuclease activity and endonuclease activity. The protein forms a complex with the RAD50 homolog; this complex is required for nonhomologous joining of DNA ends and possesses increased single-stranded DNA endonuclease and 3' to 5' exonuclease activities. In conjunction with a DNA ligase, this protein promotes the joining of noncomplementary ends in vitro using short homologies near the ends of the DNA fragments. This gene has a pseudogene on chromosome 3. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Genetic factors in individual radiation sensitivity.
Gomolka et al., Germany. In Dna Repair (amst), 30 Apr 2014
Genes involved in the single-strand-repair pathway (SSR; like XRCC1 and MSH2) as well as genes involved in the double-strand-repair pathway (DSR; like RAD50, XRCC4, MRE11 and ATM) were found to be associated with DNA damage.
Next-generation sequencing identifies germline MRE11A variants as markers of radiotherapy outcomes in muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
Kiltie et al., Leeds, United Kingdom. In Ann Oncol, 30 Apr 2014
We previously found tumour MRE11 expression to be predictive of survival following RT in MIBC, and this was independently validated in a separate institute.

Sugano et al., Tochigi, Japan. In Mol Cancer Ther, 27 Mar 2014
Reportedly, mismatch repair (MMR)-deficient colon cancer cells are sensitive to topoisomerase I inhibitor, presumably due to microsatellite instability (MSI) of the MRE11 locus.
Post-transcriptional regulation of MRE11 expression in muscle-invasive bladder tumours.
Kiltie et al., Oxford, United Kingdom. In Oncotarget, 14 Feb 2014
Our finding that low tumour MRE11 expression is predictive of poor response to radiotherapy but not cystectomy was recently independently validated.
Aberrant DNA methylation status of DNA repair genes in breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
Ohta et al., Kawasaki, Japan. In Genes Cells, Dec 2013
The aberrant DNA methylation status of the following HR related-genes was analyzed using bisulfite-pyrosequencing: BRCA1, BRCA2, BARD1, MDC1, RNF8, RNF168, UBC13, ABRA1, PALB2, RAD50, RAD51, RAD51C, MRE11, NBS1, CtIP and ATM.
ATM Alters the Otherwise Robust Chromatin Mobility at Sites of DNA Double-Strand Breaks (DSBs) in Human Cells.
Jakob et al., Darmstadt, Germany. In Plos One, Dec 2013
Also depletion of proteins that tether DNA strands like MRE11 and cohesin did not alter IRIF dynamics significantly.
Hereditary genes and SNPs associated with breast cancer.
Nasiri et al., Mashhad, Iran. In Asian Pac J Cancer Prev, 2012
The most important loci which include mutations are; BRCA1, BRCA2, PTEN, ATM, TP53, CHEK2, PPM1D, CDH1, MLH1, MRE11, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, NBN, PMS1, PMS2, BRIP1, RAD50, RAD51C, STK11 and BARD1.

O'Shea et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Cell, 2012
E4-ORF3 forms a nuclear polymer and simultaneously inactivates p53, PML, TRIM24, and MRE11/RAD50/NBS1 (MRN) tumor suppressors.
Recognition, signaling, and repair of DNA double-strand breaks produced by ionizing radiation in mammalian cells: the molecular choreography.
Thompson, Livermore, United States. In Mutat Res, 2012
ATM, ATR, DNA-PK, Chk1, Chk2, PARP1/2/3, 53BP1, BRCA1, BRCA2, BLM, RAD51, and the MRE11-RAD50-NBS1 complex.
Adenovirus regulates sumoylation of Mre11-Rad50-Nbs1 components through a paralog-specific mechanism.
Hearing et al., Stony Brook, United States. In J Virol, 2012
Mre11 and Nbs1 are sumoylated during Ad5 infection and the E4-ORF3 protein is necessary and sufficient to induce SUMO conjugation. Relocalization of Mre11 and Nbs1 into E4-ORF3 nuclear tracks is required for this modification to occur.
Site-specific DICER and DROSHA RNA products control the DNA-damage response.
d'Adda di Fagagna et al., Milano, Italy. In Nature, 2012
Through RNA deep sequencing and the study of DDR activation at a single inducible DNA double-strand break, we demonstrate that DDR foci formation requires site-specific DICER- and DROSHA-dependent small RNAs, named DDRNAs, which act in a MRE11–RAD50–NBS1-complex-dependent manner (MRE11 also known as MRE11A; NBS1 also known as NBN).

The activation of ATM involves its recruitment to the DSB through interaction with the mre11-rad50-nbs1 complex, followed by the acetylation of ATM by the Tip60 acetyltransferase.
