TopBP1 and ATR colocalization at meiotic chromosomes: role of TopBP1/Cut5 in the meiotic recombination checkpoint.
TLDR
The findings suggest that ATR and TopBP1 monitor meiotic recombination and are required for activation of the meiotic re- recombination checkpoint.
The DNA damage checkpoint protein RAD9A is essential for male meiosis in the mouse
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that RAD9A is essential for male fertility and for repair of DNA DSBs during meiotic prophase I.
CHEK1 coordinates DNA damage signaling and meiotic progression in the male germline of mice
TLDR
It is shown that CHEK1 has distinct functions in both the mitotic and meiotic phases of the male germline in mice, and stage-specific functions for CHEk1 that ensure the integrity of themale germline are revealed.
Linkage of ATM to cell cycle regulation by the Chk2 protein kinase.
TLDR
Chk2, the mammalian homolog of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Rad53 and Schizosac charomyces pombe Cds1 protein kinases required for the DNA damage and replication checkpoints, was identified and phosphorylated and activated in response to replication blocks and DNA damage.
Analysis of Rad3 and Chk1 protein kinases defines different checkpoint responses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DNA damage‐dependent phosphorylation of Chk1 is also cell‐cycle specific, occurring primarily in late S phase and G2, but not during M/G1 or early S phase, and biochemical evidence shows a physical interaction is possible between Rad3 and Cds1, and between Rad2 and Chk2 in vitro.
Genetic analysis of chromosome pairing, recombination, and cell cycle control during first meiotic prophase in mammals.
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of the use of genetic manipulation, particularly in mice, but also of the analysis of mutations in humans, to elucidate the mechanisms that are required for traverse through prophase I.
Cell cycle-dependent and ATM-independent expression of human Chk1 kinase
TLDR
It is suggested that at this particular phase of the cell cycle, even in the absence of DNA damage, hChk1 phosphorylates Cdc25C on serine 216, which is considered to be a prerequisite for the G2/M checkpoint.

The present work demonstrates that the biochemical outputs of the checkpoint pathway are dependent on the initial signalling event and confirms the genetic conclusions of this work.

Meiotic DNA replication checkpoint control in fission yeast.
TLDR
It is shown that a DNA replication checkpoint control operates during meiosis in fission yeast, where cells arrest with high Cdc2 protein kinase activity and separated spindle pole bodies, an arrest state similar to that observed in mitotic budding yeast cells when DNA replication is incomplete.

A meiotic recombination checkpoint controlled by mitotic checkpoint genes
TLDR
Evidence that RAD17, RAD24 and MEC1 are required for the meiotic arrest caused by blocking the repair of DSBs with a mutation in the recA homologue DMC1 is provided and shows that although mitotic and meiotic control mechanisms are related, they differ significantly.
Fission yeast chkl protein kinase links the rad checkpoint pathway to cdc2
TLDR
A novel fission yeast protein kinase homologue which is involved in cell-cycle arrest when DNA damage has occurred or when unligated DNA is present is identified and called chkl for checkpoint kinase.
Conservation of the Chk1 checkpoint pathway in mammals: linkage of DNA damage to Cdk regulation through Cdc25.
TLDR
Results suggest a model whereby in response to DNA damage, Chk1 phosphorylates and inhibits Cdc25C, thus preventing activation of the Cdc2-cyclin B complex and mitotic entry.
Chk1 is a wee1 kinase in the G2 DNA damage checkpoint inhibiting cdc2 by Y15 phosphorylation
TLDR
It is shown here that Y15 phosphorylation is maintained in checkpoint‐arrested fission yeast cells, and wee1 is required for cell cycle arrest induced by up‐regulation of an essential component of this checkpoint, chk1.
DNA-replication checkpoint control at the Drosophila midblastula transition
Embryogenesis is typically initiated by a series of rapid mitotic divisions that are under maternal genetic control. The switch to zygotic control of embryogenesis at the midblastula transition is
An essential gene, ESR1, is required for mitotic cell growth, DNA repair and meiotic recombination in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
TLDR
Results suggest that ESR1 is multi-functional throughout mitosis and meiosis, as the deleted haploid strain was lethal.
cDNA cloning and gene mapping of a candidate human cell cycle checkpoint protein.
TLDR
FRP1 is most closely related to three of the PIK-related kinase family members involved in checkpoint function--Mei-41, Mec1p, and Rad3--and as such may be the functional human counterpart of these proteins.
