Meiosis is the key process for recombination and reduction of the diploid chromosome set to a haploid one. Many genes that have been found in yeast or mouse models to play a role in meiosis are also important for the repair of DNA damage in somatic cells. To study the DNA repair gene transcriptome during male germ cell development, we have developed a specialized cDNA microarray with 181 human genes which are involved in different somatic DNA repair pathways and/or cell cycle control and 45… Expand
Meiosis as an Evolutionary Adaptation for DNA Repair
TLDR
Evidence that meiosis is primarily an evolutionary adaptation for DNA repair is presented, including evidence that among microbial pathogens, sexual processes promote repair of DNA damage, especially when challenged by the oxidative defenses of their biologic hosts. Expand
Evidence that hMLH3 functions primarily in meiosis and in hMSH2-hMSH3 mismatch repair
TLDR
A role for hMLH3 in meiosis as well as hMSH2-hMSH3 repair processes and little if any role in Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC) is suggested. Expand
Maize defective kernel mutant generated by insertion of a Ds element in a gene encoding a highly conserved TTI2 cochaperone
TLDR
The newly engineered transposable element Dsg is used to tag a gene that gives rise to a defective kernel (dek) phenotype and creates alleles of the tagged gene that confirmed causation of the dek phenotype by the Dsg insertion. Expand
DNA-damage response in tissue-specific and cancer stem cells.
TLDR
How different SC populations sense and functionally respond to DNA damage is discussed, and various common and distinct mechanisms utilized by tissue-specific SCs to address DNA damage are identified. Expand
Chapter 3 Evolutionary Origin and Adaptive Function of Meiosis
The origin of meiosis and its adaptive function in eukaryotes, and the related problem of the origin and adaptive function of sex in eukaryotes, are fundamental issues in biology. Among eukaryotes,Expand
Evolutionary Origin and Adaptive Function of Meiosis
TLDR
Accumulating evidence indicates that meiosis arose very early in the evolution of eukaryotes, and basic features of meiosis were likely already present in the prokaryotic ancestors of eUKaryotes. Expand
Somatic maintenance impacts the evolution of mutation rate
TLDR
Evidence is presented from stochastic modeling that the direction and strength of selection acting on mutation rates is highly dependent on the evolution of somatic maintenance, and thus longevity, which modulates the cost of somatics mutations. Expand
Somatic maintenance impacts the evolution of mutation rate
TLDR
Evidence is presented from stochastic modeling that the direction and strength of selection acting on mutation rates is highly dependent on the evolution of somatic maintenance, and thus longevity, which modulates the cost of somatics mutations. Expand
Somatic maintenance alters selection acting on mutation rate
TLDR
Evidence is presented from stochastic modeling that the direction and strength of selection acting on mutation rates is highly dependent on the evolution of somatic maintenance, and thus longevity, which modulates the cost of somatics mutations. Expand
The human mutation rate is increasing, even as it slows.
TLDR
It is proposed that the generation-time effect as it is usually understood cannot explain the observed rate variation, but instead that selection for decreased somatic mutation rates can be explained. Expand

Expression of Deoxyribonucleic Acid Repair Enzymes During Spermatogenesis in Mice1
TLDR
Patterns of expression for genes encoding mismatch repair enzymes are consistent with the proposed roles of the gene products in mismatch repair during both DNA replication and recombination. Expand
Xrcc-1 expression during male meiosis in the mouse.
TLDR
R reverse transcription coupled polymerase chain reaction amplification results demonstrated that Xrcc-1 expression is most abundant in pachytene spermatocytes and round s permatids with low expression in Sertoli cells, types A and B sperMatogonia, preleptotene sper matocytes, and leptotenes plus zygotene sPermatocytes.

TLDR
The identification of human and mouse homologs of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe DNA damage checkpoint control gene rad1(+) and its SacCharomyces cerevisiae homolog RAD17 suggest that these events are highly conserved from yeast to humans. Expand

TLDR
Several DNA‐damage detection and repair mechanisms have evolved to repair double‐strand breaks induced by mutagens, resulting in adaptations specific to sexual reproduction. Expand
Impaired meiotic DNA-damage repair and lack of crossing-over during spermatogenesis in BRCA1 full-length isoform deficient mice
TLDR
The study revealed an essential role of Brca1 in DNA-damage repair and crossing-over of homologous chromosomes during spermatogenesis, which was accompanied by increased apoptosis by both p53-dependent and p 53-independent mechanisms. Expand

TLDR
An updated inventory of about 150 human DNA repair genes is described, and the approximately 25 genes added, since the original version of the table was first produced in 2001, and some other revisions are discussed. Expand
Expression of DNMT3A transcripts and nucleolar localization of DNMT3A protein in human testicular and fibroblast cells suggest a role for de novo DNA methylation in nucleolar inactivation
TLDR
A role for de novo DNA methylation in nucleolar inactivation is suggested in nucle polar inactivation of male male germ cells and serum starvation of human fibroblasts. Expand
BRCA2 deficiency in mice leads to meiotic impairment and infertility
TLDR
Evidence is provided for key roles of the BRCA2 protein in mammalian gametogenesis and meiotic success in knockout mice and some mutant oocytes can progress through meiotic prophase I, albeit with a high frequency of nuclear abnormalities, and can be fertilized and produce embryos. Expand
p21WAF1 expression during spermatogenesis of the normal and X-irradiated rat.
TLDR
It appears that X-irradiation induces p21WAF1 in the pachytene spermatocytes in normal testis, the protein may take part in the regulation of meiosis and in the 'terminal' differentiation of the male germ cells. Expand
Homologous recombinational repair proteins in mouse meiosis

Focusing on the mouse as a model organism, what is known about the conserved roles of these proteins in vertebrate somatic cells and in mammalian meiosis is considered, including such information as gene expression in gonadal tissue, protein localization patterns on chromosomal cores in meiocyte nuclei, and information gleaned from mouse models.
