Interstrand cross-links (ICLs) are extremely toxic DNA lesions that prevent DNA double-helix separation due to the irreversible covalent linkage binding of some agents on DNA strands. Agents that induce these ICLs are thus widely used as chemotherapeutic drugs but may also lead to tumor growth. Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare genetic disorder that leads to(More)
FA is a rare recessive genetic disorder with autosomal or X-linked mode of inheritance and is associated with 19 different FA complementation groups. We have studied three patients clinically diagnosed as FA. All three patients showed a high frequency chromosomal breakage in MMC induced blood cultures and FANCD2 non-monoubiquitination by western blotting.(More)
Fanconi anemia (FA), a rare heterogeneous genetic disorder, is known to be associated with 19 genes and a spectrum of clinical features. We studied FANCA molecular changes in 34 unrelated and 2 siblings of Indian patients with FA and have identified 26 different molecular changes of FANCA gene, of which 8 were novel mutations (a small deletion c.2500delC, 4(More)
