RID1, encoding a Cys2/His2-type zinc finger transcription factor, acts as a master switch from vegetative to floral development in rice
Transition from the vegetative phase to reproductive phase is a crucial process in the life cycle of higher plants. Although the molecular mechanisms of flowering regulation have been extensivelyExpand

A selective USP1-UAF1 inhibitor links deubiquitination to DNA damage responses.
Protein ubiquitination and deubiquitination are central to the control of a large number of cellular pathways and signaling networks in eukaryotes. Although the essential roles of ubiquitination haveExpand

Non-random distribution of T-DNA insertions at various levels of the genome hierarchy as revealed by analyzing 13 804 T-DNA flanking sequences from an enhancer-trap mutant library.
We isolated 13 804 T-DNA flanking sequence tags (FSTs) from a T-DNA insertion library of rice. A comprehensive analysis of the 13 804 FSTs revealed a number of features demonstrating a highlyExpand

Translesion Synthesis of 8,5′-Cyclopurine-2′-deoxynucleosides by DNA Polymerases η, ι, and ζ*
Background: The 8,5′-cyclopurine-2′-deoxynucleosides (cPus) are important types of oxidative DNA damage. Results: cPus exhibit both inhibitory and mutagenic effects on replication; polymerases (Pols)Expand

Identification of novel α-n-methylation of CENP-B that regulates its binding to the centromeric DNA.
The eukaryotic centromere is an essential chromatin region required for accurate segregation of sister chromatids during cell division. Centromere protein B (CENP-B) is a highly conserved proteinExpand

The Functions of Serine 687 Phosphorylation of Human DNA Polymerase η in UV Damage Tolerance*
DNA polymerase η (polη) is a Y-family translesion synthesis polymerase that plays a key role in the cellular tolerance toward UV irradiation-induced DNA damage. Here, we identified, for the firstExpand

Endogenous formation and repair of oxidatively induced G[8-5 m]T intrastrand cross-link lesion
Exposure to reactive oxygen species (ROS) can give rise to the formation of various DNA damage products. Among them, d(G[8-5 m]T) can be induced in isolated DNA treated with Fenton reagents and inExpand

A Quantitative Assay for Assessing the Effects of DNA Lesions on Transcription
Most mammalian cells in nature are quiescent but actively transcribing mRNA for normal physiological processes; thus, it is important to investigate how endogenous and exogenous DNA damageExpand
