Fanconi anemia (FA) is a cancer-prone hereditary disease resulting from mutations in one of the 13 genes defining the FANC/BRCA pathway. This pathway is involved in the cellular resistance to DNA-cross-linking agents. How the FANC/BRCA pathway is activated and why its deficiency leads to the accumulation of FA cells with a 4N DNA content are still poorly(More)
The maintenance of genetic stability depends on the fine-tuned initiation and termination of pathways involved in cell cycle checkpoints and DNA repair. Here, we describe a new pathway that regulates checkpoint kinase 1 (CHK1) activity, a key element controlling both checkpoints and DNA repair. We show that the ubiquitin-specific peptidase 1 (USP1)(More)
