Biologists reported today in Nature that they have identified two pathways through which chromosomes are rearranged in mammalian cells.
Cell aging, or cellular senescence, has an important role in the natural physiological response to tumor development.
Scientists at Burnham Institute for Medical Research (Burnham) have demonstrated important new roles for the protein kinase complex Cdc7/Dbf4 or Cdc7/Drf1 (Ddk) in monitoring damage control during DNA replication and reinitiating replication following DNA repair. Since Ddk is often deregulated in human cancers, this new understanding of its role in DNA damage control could help shape new cancer therapies. The research was published in the December 24 issue of Molecular Cell.Accurate DNA...
