DNA double-strand breaks are repaired by homologous recombination or DNA end-joining, but the latter process often causes legitimate recombination and chromosome rearrangements. One of the factors involved in the end-joining process is Hdf1, a yeast homologue of Ku protein. We used the yeast two-hybrid assay to show that Hdf1 interacts with Sir4, which is(More)
Shugoshin 1 (SGO1) is required for accurate chromosome segregation during mitosis and meiosis; however, its other functions, especially at interphase, are not clearly understood. Here, we found that downregulation of SGO1 caused a synergistic phenotype in cells overexpressing MYCN. Downregulation of SGO1 impaired proliferation and induced DNA damage(More)
