Paradoxical decrease in mutant frequencies and chromosomal rearrangements in a transgenic lacZ reporter gene in Ku80 null mice deficient in DNA double strand break repair.

Abstract

Repair of DNA double strand breaks (DSB), either by homologous recombination (HR) or nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ), is essential to maintain genomic stability. To examine the impact of NHEJ deficiency on genomic integrity in Ku80 null (Ku-) mice, the chromosomally integrated shuttle vector pUR288, which includes a lacZ reporter gene, was used to measure… (More)
