Invasive oral cancer stem cells display resistance to ionising radiation.
London, United Kingdom. In Oncotarget, Jan 2016
We propose that this is a result of preferential activation of the DNA damagerepair pathway in oral CSC with increased activation of ATM and BRCA1, elevated levels of DNA repair proteins RAD52, XLF, and a significantly faster rate of DNA double-strand-breaks clearance 24 hours following IR.
More forks on the road to replication stress recovery.
Fort Collins, United States. In J Mol Cell Biol, 2011
In recent years, several proteins involved in DSB repair by non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) have been implicated in the replication stress response, including DNA-PKcs, Ku, DNA Ligase IV-XRCC4, Artemis, XLF and Metnase.
