Incision of damaged DNA in the presence of an impaired Smc5/6 complex imperils genome stability

The Smc5/6 complex is implicated in homologous recombination-mediated DNA repair during DNA damage or replication stress. Here, we analysed genome-wide replication dynamics in a hypomorphic budding yeast mutant, smc6-P4 The overall replication dynamics in the smc6 mutant is similar to that in the wild-type cells. However, we captured a difference in the… CONTINUE READING
