DNA Damage-Induced Replication Fork Regression and Processing in Escherichia coli
DNA lesions that block replication are a primary cause of rearrangements, mutations, and lethality in all cells. After ultraviolet (UV)-induced DNA damage in Escherichia coli, replication recoveryExpand

Distinct and separate roles for herpesvirus-conserved UL97 kinase in cytomegalovirus DNA synthesis and encapsidation.
The human cytomegalovirus UL97 kinase, an important target of antiviral therapy, has an impact on at least two distinct phases of viral replication. Compared with wild-type virus, the UL97 deletionExpand

Structural conservation of RecF and Rad50: implications for DNA recognition and RecF function
RecF, together with RecO and RecR, belongs to a ubiquitous group of recombination mediators (RMs) that includes eukaryotic proteins such as Rad52 and BRCA2. RMs help maintain genome stability in theExpand

Completion of DNA replication in Escherichia coli
Significance All phases of DNA replication are tightly regulated to ensure that daughter cells inherit a precise copy of the genomic DNA. Although the mechanisms regulating initiation and elongationExpand

Requirement for Uracil-DNA Glycosylase during the Transition to Late-Phase Cytomegalovirus DNA Replication
ABSTRACT Cytomegalovirus gene UL114, a homolog of mammalian uracil-DNA glycosylase (UNG), is required for efficient viral DNA replication. In quiescent fibroblasts, UNG mutant virus replication isExpand

Nucleotide excision repair or polymerase V-mediated lesion bypass can act to restore UV-arrested replication forks in Escherichia coli.
Nucleotide excision repair and translesion DNA synthesis are two processes that operate at arrested replication forks to reduce the frequency of recombination and promote cell survival followingExpand

Nascent DNA processing by RecJ favors lesion repair over translesion synthesis at arrested replication forks in Escherichia coli.
DNA lesions that arrest replication can lead to rearrangements, mutations, or lethality when not processed accurately. After UV-induced DNA damage in Escherichia coli, RecA and several recF pathwayExpand

RuvABC Is Required to Resolve Holliday Junctions That Accumulate following Replication on Damaged Templates in Escherichia coli*
RuvABC is a complex that promotes branch migration and resolution of Holliday junctions. Although ruv mutants are hypersensitive to UV irradiation, the molecular event(s) that necessitate RuvABCExpand

SbcC-SbcD and ExoI process convergent forks to complete chromosome replication
Significance SbcC-SbcD and ExoI belong to a class of highly conserved nucleases that are critical to genome stability, but whose cellular function remains poorly understood. Human homologs of theseExpand

Nucleotide excision repair is a predominant mechanism for processing nitrofurazone-induced DNA damage in Escherichia coli.
Nitrofurazone is reduced by cellular nitroreductases to form N(2)-deoxyguanine (N(2)-dG) adducts that are associated with mutagenesis and lethality. Much attention recently has been given to the roleExpand
