Xeroderma pigmentosum cells with normal levels of excision repair have a defect in DNA synthesis after UV-irradiation.
Cells cultured from most patients suffering from the sunlight-sensitive hereditary disorder xeroderma pigmentosum are defective in the ability to excise ultraviolet light (UV)-induced pyrimidineExpand

Targeted Inactivation of Mouse RAD52Reduces Homologous Recombination but Not Resistance to Ionizing Radiation
ABSTRACT The RAD52 epistasis group is required for recombinational repair of double-strand breaks (DSBs) and shows strong evolutionary conservation. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, RAD52 is one of theExpand

Adducts of the antitumor drug cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) with DNA: formation, identification, and quantitation.
Salmon sperm DNA, treated with the antitumor agent cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (cis-DDP), was enzymatically degraded to (oligo)nucleotides. Four Pt-containing products were identified by 1H NMRExpand

Efficient rescue of integrated shuttle vectors from transgenic mice: a model for studying mutations in vivo.
To study gene mutations in different organs and tissues of an experimental animal, we produced transgenic mice harboring bacteriophage lambda shuttle vectors integrated in the genome in aExpand

Genomic integrity and the repair of double-strand DNA breaks.
The induction of double-strand breaks (DSBs) in DNA by exposure to DNA damaging agents or as intermediates in normal cellular processes, creates a severe threat for the integrity of the genome.Expand

Distinct spectra of somatic mutations accumulated with age in mouse heart and small intestine.
Somatic mutation accumulation has been implicated as a major cause of cancer and aging. By using a transgenic mouse model with a chromosomally integrated lacZ reporter gene, mutational spectra wereExpand

Homologous recombination in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe: different requirements for the rhp51+, rhp54+ and rad22+ genes
Abstract The Schizosaccharomyces pombe rhp51+, rad22+ and rhp54+ genes are homologous to RAD51, RAD52 and RAD54 respectively, which are indispensable in the recombinational repair of double-strandExpand

Induction and repair of DNA cross-links in chinese hamster ovary cells treated with various platinum coordination compounds in relation to platinum binding to DNA, cytotoxicity, mutagenicity, and
Several effects of four diamminechloroplatinum compounds (II and IV) in Chinese hamster ovary cells were studied. The two cis-compounds [cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) andExpand

The role of nucleotide excision repair in protecting embryonic stem cells from genotoxic effects of UV-induced DNA damage.
In this study the role of nucleotide excision repair (NER) in protecting mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells against the genotoxic effects of UV-photolesions was analysed. Repair of cyclobutaneExpand
