A single ataxia telangiectasia gene with a product similar to PI-3 kinase.
A gene, ATM, that is mutated in the autosomal recessive disorder ataxia telangiectasia (AT) was identified by positional cloning on chromosome 11q22-23. AT is characterized by cerebellarExpand

Ataxia telangiectasia-mutated phosphorylates Chk2 in vivo and in vitro.
The protein kinase Chk2, the mammalian homolog of the budding yeast Rad53 and fission yeast Cds1 checkpoint kinases, is phosphorylated and activated in response to DNA damage by ionizing radiationExpand

Widespread occurrence of antisense transcription in the human genome
An increasing number of eukaryotic genes are being found to have naturally occurring antisense transcripts. Here we study the extent of antisense transcription in the human genome by analyzing theExpand

The complete sequence of the coding region of the ATM gene reveals similarity to cell cycle regulators in different species.
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is an autosomal recessive disorder involving cerebellar degeneration, immunodeficiency radiation sensitivity, and cancer predisposition. A-T heterozygotes are moderatelyExpand

ATM deficiency and oxidative stress: a new dimension of defective response to DNA damage.
ATM is one of the sentries at the gate of genome stability. This multifunctional protein kinase orchestrates the intricate array of cellular responses to DNA double-strand breaks. Absence orExpand

Transgenic mice with increased Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase activity: animal model of dosage effects in Down syndrome.
Down syndrome, the phenotypic expression of human trisomy 21, is presumed to result from a 1.5-fold increase in the expression of the genes on human chromosome 21. As an approach to the developmentExpand

Discovery and Validation of Novel Peptide Agonists for G-protein-coupled Receptors*
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent an important group of targets for pharmaceutical therapeutics. The completion of the human genome revealed a large number of putative GPCRs. However, theExpand

ATM: A mediator of multiple responses to genotoxic stress
The ATM protein kinase is the product of the gene responsible for the pleiotropic recessive disorder ataxia-telangiectasia. ATM-deficient cells show enhanced sensitivity and greatly reduced responsesExpand

Nuclear retention of ATM at sites of DNA double strand breaks.
The ATM protein kinase mediates a rapid induction of cellular responses to DNA double strand breaks (DSBs). ATM kinase activity is enhanced immediately after exposure of cells to DSB-inducing agents,Expand

Accumulation of DNA Damage and Reduced Levels of Nicotine Adenine Dinucleotide in the Brains of Atm-deficient Mice*
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a human genetic disorder caused by mutational inactivation of the ATM gene. A-T patients display a pleiotropic phenotype, in which a major neurological feature isExpand
