Cell cycle checkpoints are essential for maintaining genomic integrity. Human topoisomerase II binding protein 1 (TopBP1) shares sequence similarity with budding yeast Dpb11, fission yeast Rad4/Cut5, and Xenopus Cut5, all of which are required for DNA replication and cell cycle checkpoints. Indeed, we have shown that human TopBP1 participates in the activation of replication checkpoint and DNA damage checkpoints, following hydroxyurea treatment and ionizing radiation. In this study, we address… CONTINUE READING
