Single-strand-selective monofunctional uracil-DNA glycosylase 1 (SMUG1) is a base excision repair enzyme that removes uracil and oxidised pyrimidines from DNA. We show that SMUG1 interacts with the pseudouridine synthase Dyskerin (DKC1) and colocalizes with DKC1 in nucleoli and Cajal bodies. As DKC1 functions in RNA processing, we tested whether SMUG1(More)
The acquisition of an appropriate set of chemical modifications is required in order to establish correct structure of RNA molecules, and essential for their function. Modification of RNA bases affects RNA maturation, RNA processing, RNA quality control, and protein translation. Some RNA modifications are directly involved in the regulation of these(More)
Both a DNA lesion and an intermediate for antibody maturation, uracil is primarily processed by base excision repair (BER), either initiated by uracil-DNA glycosylase (UNG) or by single-strand selective monofunctional uracil DNA glycosylase (SMUG1). The relative in vivo contributions of each glycosylase remain elusive. To assess the impact of SMUG1(More)
