The Swi5–Sfr1 complex stimulates Rhp51/Rad51 - and Dmc1-mediated DNA strand exchange in vitro
Nucleoprotein filaments made up of Rad51 or Dmc1 recombinases, the core structures of recombination, engage in ATP-dependent DNA-strand exchange. The ability of recombinases to form filaments isExpand

Tubulin isotype substitution revealed that isotype combination modulates microtubule dynamics in C. elegans embryos
ABSTRACT Microtubules (MTs) are polymers composed of α- and β-tubulin heterodimers that are generally encoded by genes at multiple loci. Despite implications of distinct properties depending on theExpand

Fission yeast Swi5 protein, a novel DNA recombination mediator.
The Schizosaccharomyces pombe Swi5 protein forms two distinct protein complexes, Swi5-Sfr1 and Swi5-Swi2, each of which plays an important role in the related but functionally distinct processes ofExpand

Srs2 Plays a Critical Role in Reversible G2 Arrest upon Chronic and Low Doses of UV Irradiation via Two Distinct Homologous Recombination-Dependent Mechanisms in Postreplication Repair-Deficient Cells
ABSTRACT Differential posttranslational modification of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) by ubiquitin or SUMO plays an important role in coordinating the processes of DNA replication and DNAExpand

Chronic low-dose ultraviolet-induced mutagenesis in nucleotide excision repair-deficient cells
UV radiation induces two major types of DNA lesions, cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) and 6-4 pyrimidine-pyrimidine photoproducts, which are both primarily repaired by nucleotide excision repairExpand

The PAF1 complex is involved in embryonic epidermal morphogenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans.
The PAF1 complex (PAF1C) is an evolutionarily conserved protein complex involved in transcriptional regulation and chromatin remodeling. How the PAF1C is involved in animal development is still notExpand
