Toxic DNA-protein crosslinks (DPCs) arise by ionizing irradiation and UV light, are particularly caused by endogenously produced reactive compounds such as formaldehyde, and also occur during compromised topoisomerase action. Although nucleotide excision repair and homologous recombination contribute to cell survival upon DPCs, hardly anything is known(More)
Proteins containing ubiquitin-like (UBL) and ubiquitin-associated (UBA) domains interact with various binding partners and function as hubs during ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation. A common interaction of the budding yeast UBL-UBA proteins Rad23 and Dsk2 with the E4 ubiquitin ligase Ufd2 has been described in endoplasmic reticulum-associated(More)
Covalent DNA-protein crosslinks (DPCs) are toxic DNA lesions that interfere with essential chromatin transactions, such as replication and transcription. Little was known about DPC-specific repair mechanisms until the recent identification of a DPC-processing protease in yeast. The existence of a DPC protease in higher eukaryotes is inferred from data in(More)
