Histone Methylation by SETD1A Protects Nascent DNA through the Nucleosome Chaperone Activity of FANCD2
Summary Components of the Fanconi anemia and homologous recombination pathways play a vital role in protecting newly replicated DNA from uncontrolled nucleolytic degradation, safeguarding genomeExpand

Controlling the drying and film formation processes of polymer solution droplets with addition of small amount of surfactants.
We studied how the addition of surfactants alters the drying and film formation processes of polymer solution droplets with contact lines strongly fixed by bank structures. We found that even if theExpand

FANCI-FANCD2 stabilizes the RAD51-DNA complex by binding RAD51 and protects the 5′-DNA end
The FANCI-FANCD2 (I-D) complex is considered to work with RAD51 to protect the damaged DNA in the stalled replication fork. However, the means by which this DNA protection is accomplished haveExpand

The fertilization potential provides a fast block to polyspermy in lamprey eggs.
At fertilization, the membrane potential of the egg of the lamprey, Lampetra japonica, shifted rapidly from its resting value of -12 to +36 mV and gradually returned to about the same resting levelExpand

Xeroderma pigmentosum group C protein interacts with histones: regulation by acetylated states of histone H3
In the mammalian global genome nucleotide excision repair pathway, two damage recognition factors, XPC and UV‐DDB, play pivotal roles in the initiation of the repair reaction. However, the molecularExpand

Prolyl endopeptidase inhibitors from the roots of Lindera strychnifolia F. Vill.
Prolyl endopeptidase (PEP, EC has been proposed to play a role in degradation of proline-containing neuropeptides involved in the processes of learning and memory, e.g., vasopressin,Expand

Expression of Tumor Necrosis Factor‐α and Interleukin‐6 in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
To explore the role of cytokines in tumor development and clinical manifestations, we examined the expressions of tumor necrosis factor‐α (TNF‐α) and interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) in tumor tissues obtainedExpand

Nap1 stimulates homologous recombination by RAD51 and RAD54 in higher-ordered chromatin containing histone H1
Homologous recombination plays essential roles in mitotic DNA double strand break (DSB) repair and meiotic genetic recombination. In eukaryotes, RAD51 promotes the central homologous-pairing stepExpand
