The failure of cells to repair damaged DNA can result in genomic instability and cancer. To efficiently repair chromosomal DNA lesions, the repair machinery must gain access to the damaged DNA in the context of chromatin. Here we report that both the RSC and Swi/Snf ATP-dependent chromatin-remodeling complexes play key roles in double-strand break (DSB)(More)
RSC is a 15-protein ATP-dependent chromatin-remodeling complex related to Snf-Swi, the prototypical ATP-dependent nucleosome remodeler in budding yeast. Despite insight into the mechanism by which purified RSC remodels nucleosomes, little is known about the chromosomal targets or cellular pathways in which RSC acts. To better understand the cellular(More)
