Homologous recombination among repetitive sequences is an important mode of DNA repair in eukaryotes following acute radiation exposure. We have developed an assay in Saccharomyces cerevisiae that models how multiple DNA double-strand breaks form chromosomal translocations by a nonconservative homologous recombination mechanism, single-strand annealing, and(More)
Unique and uncommon BamHI allelic restriction fragments of the Ha-ras locus have been reported in the genomes of patients with cancer and of three affected members of a familial melanoma kindred (Krontiris et al., 1986). Analysis of the BamHI and Msp/HpaII restriction fragments of peripheral blood leucocyte DNA from the members of two families with(More)
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in the United States, and survival rates are lower for patients with metastases and/or triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC; ER, PR, and Her2 negative). Understanding the mechanisms of cancer metastasis is therefore crucial to identify new therapeutic targets and develop novel treatments(More)
