The murine Mac-2 protein is a galactose- and IgE-binding lectin secreted by inflammatory macrophages. We describe here the cloning and characterization of a cDNA representing the human homolog of Mac-2 (hMac-2). The amino acid sequence derived from the hMac-2 cDNA indicates that the protein is evolutionarily highly conserved, with 85% of its amino acid(More)
During DNA replication, DNA polymerases alternate between DNA synthesis and proofreading the newly synthesized DNA. In order to understand the molecular details of how DNA polymerases determine the balance between polymerase and proofreading activities, it would be useful to have mutants which switch between the two activities either more or less(More)
The evolutionally conserved Fun30 chromatin remodeler in Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been shown to contribute to cellular resistance to genotoxic stress inflicted by camptothecin (CPT), methyl methanesulfonate (MMS) and hydroxyurea (HU). Fun30 aids in extensive DNA resection of DNA double stranded break (DSB) ends, which is thought to underlie its role in(More)
