FANCI and FANCD2 form a complex, and play essential roles in the repair of interstrand DNA crosslinks (ICLs) by the Fanconi anemia (FA) pathway. FANCD2 is monoubiquitylated by the FA core complex, composed of 10 FA proteins including FANCL as the catalytic E3 subunit. FANCD2 monoubiquitylation can be reconstituted with purified minimal components, such as(More)
Fanconi anaemia (FA) is a rare hereditary disorder characterized by genomic instability and cancer susceptibility. A key FA protein, FANCD2, is targeted to chromatin with its partner, FANCI, and plays a critical role in DNA crosslink repair. However, the molecular function of chromatin-bound FANCD2-FANCI is still poorly understood. In the present study, we(More)
Mutants of the cellular slime mold Polysphondylium pallidum have been selected using a cell sorter and a fluorescentlabeled monoclonal antibody, mAb 293. This antibody blocks cell adhesion when applied as Fab, and recognizes a carbohydrate epitope containing L-fucose. This epitope is expressed on the cell surface and is present on >10 membrane glycoproteins(More)
