High homology is not required at the site of strand invasion during recombinational double-strand break repair in mammalian chromosomes.


We investigated the impact of sequence divergence on DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair occurring via recombination in cultured thymidine kinase deficient mouse fibroblasts. We stably transfected cells with a DNA construct harboring a herpes thymidine kinase (tk) gene (the "recipient") rendered nonfunctional by insertion of an oligonucleotide containing… (More)
