On the slowing of S phase in response to DNA damage in fission yeast.


Eukaryotic cells slow their progression through S phase upon DNA damage. The mechanism that leads to this slowing is called the intra-S-phase checkpoint. Previous studies demonstrated that in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe this checkpoint is mediated by a pathway that includes Rad3 (similar to human ATR and ATM) and Cds1 (similar to human Chk1… (More)
