Nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ) is the major mammalian DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair pathway of DSBs induced by DNA damaging agents. NHEJ is initiated by the recognition of DSBs by the DNA end-binding heterodimer, Ku, and the final step of DNA end-joining is accomplished by the XRCC4-DNA ligase IV complex. We demonstrate that Aprataxin and PNK-like(More)
Members of the Rab guanosine triphosphatase (GTPase) family are key regulators of membrane traffic. Here we examined the association of 48 Rabs with model phagosomes containing a non-invasive mutant of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium). This mutant traffics to lysosomes and allowed us to determine which Rabs localize to a maturing(More)
APLF is a forkhead associated-containing protein with poly(ADP-ribose)-binding zinc finger (PBZ) domains, which undergoes ionizing radiation (IR)-induced and Ataxia-Telangiectasia Mutated (ATM)-dependent phosphorylation at serine-116 (Ser(116)). Here, we demonstrate that the phosphorylation of APLF at Ser(116) in human U2OS cells by ATM is dependent on(More)
p53 regulates apoptosis and the cell cycle through actions in the nucleus and cytoplasm. Altering the subcellular localization of p53 can alter its biological function. Therefore, small molecules that change the localization of p53 would be useful chemical probes to understand the influence of subcellular localization on the function of p53. To identify(More)
