Genome instability is a hallmark of cancer, and DNA replication is the most vulnerable cellular process that can lead to it. Any condition leading to high levels of DNA damage will result in replication stress, which is a source of genome instability and a feature of pre-cancerous and cancerous cells. Therefore, understanding the molecular basis of replication stress is crucial to the understanding of tumorigenesis. Although a negative aspect of replication stress is its prominent role in… Expand

DNA replication stress and cancer chemotherapy
TLDR
In this review, the current understanding of DRS in tumors is introduced and the underlying mechanism of cancer therapy from the aspect of D RS is discussed. Expand
Rescue from replication stress during mitosis
TLDR
The causes and consequences of replication stress, focusing on its persistence in mitosis as well as the mechanisms and factors involved in its resolution, are discussed, and the potential impact of incomplete replication or aberrant MRRS on tumorigenesis, aging and disease is discussed. Expand
Targeting DNA Replication Stress for Cancer Therapy
TLDR
The rationale to enhance replicative stress in cancer cells, past approaches using traditional radiation and chemotherapy, and emerging approaches targeting the signaling cascades induced by DNA damage are discussed. Expand
DNA replication stress and its impact on chromosome segregation and tumorigenesis.
TLDR
Some of the important issues that have emerged in recent years concerning DNA replication stress and fragile site expression are reviewed, as well as how chromosome instability is minimized by a family of ring-shaped protein complexes known as SMC proteins. Expand
DNA replication and cancer: From dysfunctional replication origin activities to therapeutic opportunities.
A dividing cell has to duplicate its DNA precisely once during the cell cycle to preserve genome integrity avoiding the accumulation of genetic aberrations that promote diseases such as cancer. AExpand
DNA replication stress: from molecular mechanisms to human disease
TLDR
In this review, recent progress is summarized in three areas: (1) endogenous and exogenous factors that contribute to RS, (2) molecular mechanisms that mediate the cellular responses toRS, and (3) the large list of diseases that are directly or indirectly linked to RS. Expand
DNA replication stress: oncogenes in the spotlight
Abstract Precise replication of genetic material is essential to maintain genome stability. DNA replication is a tightly regulated process that ensues faithful copies of DNA molecules to daughterExpand
DNA replication stress: oncogenes in the spotlight.
TLDR
This review focuses on main oncogenes that induce DNA replication stress, such as RAS, MYC, Cyclin E, MDM2, and BCL-2 among others, and the molecular mechanisms by which these oncogenees interfere with normal DNA replication and promote genomic instability. Expand
Potential biomarkers of DNA replication stress in cancer
TLDR
This article reviews the genetic changes present in cancer cells that influence oncogene-induced RS and CIN, with a particular emphasis on regions of the human genome that show enhanced sensitivity to the destabilizing effects of RS, such as common fragile sites. Expand
Inhibition of DNA2 nuclease as a therapeutic strategy targeting replication stress in cancer cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DNA2 is overexpressed in pancreatic cancers, one of the deadliest and more aggressive forms of human cancers, where mutations in the KRAS are present in 90–95% of cases, and chemical inhibition of DNA2 selectively attenuates the growth of various cancer cells with oncogene-induced replication stress.

The WRN and MUS81 proteins limit cell death and genome instability following oncogene activation
TLDR
It is shown that the WRN protein, a member of the human RecQ helicases, is necessary to sustain replication fork progression in response to oncogene-induced replication stress, and it is demonstrated that double-strand breaks depend on the MUS81 endonuclease, which represents a parallel pathway collaborating with WRN to prevent cell death. Expand
Nucleotide Deficiency Promotes Genomic Instability in Early Stages of Cancer Development
TLDR
The replication dynamics in cells in which a regulator of S phase entry and cell proliferation, the Rb-E2F pathway, is aberrantly activated are studied to suggest a model for early oncogenesis in which uncoordinated activation of factors regulating cell proliferation leads to insufficient nucleotides that fail to support normal replication and genome stability. Expand
Cdc45 is a critical effector of myc-dependent DNA replication stress.
TLDR
It is found that overexpression of c-Myc alters the spatiotemporal program of replication initiation by increasing the density of early-replicating origins and results in elevated replication-fork stalling or collapse and subsequent DNA damage. Expand
MYC and the control of DNA replication.
TLDR
The normal role of MYC in regulating DNA replication as well as its ability to generate DNA replication stress when overexpressed are reviewed, which could contribute to genomic instability and cancer. Expand
Oncogene-induced senescence is part of the tumorigenesis barrier imposed by DNA damage checkpoints
TLDR
It is shown that oncogene-induced senescence is associated with signs of DNA replication stress, including prematurely terminated DNA replication forks and DNA double-strand breaks, and, together with apoptosis, provides a barrier to malignant progression. Expand
Increased replication initiation and conflicts with transcription underlie Cyclin E-induced replication stress
TLDR
The data suggest that Cyclin E-induced replication stress is caused by deregulation of replication initiation and increased interference between replication and transcription, which results in impaired replication fork progression and DNA damage triggering the tumor barrier or cancer-promoting mutations. Expand
DNA damage response as a candidate anti-cancer barrier in early human tumorigenesis
TLDR
It is shown that in clinical specimens from different stages of human tumours of the urinary bladder, breast, lung and colon, the early precursor lesions commonly express markers of an activated DNA damage response. Expand
Checking on DNA damage in S phase
TLDR
Findings on the emerging mechanisms of activation, the signalling pathways and the spatio-temporal organization of the intra-S-phase DNA-damage checkpoint and its impact on the cell-cycle machinery are integrated and discussed. Expand
Loss of Geminin induces rereplication in the presence of functional p53
TLDR
It is shown that inactivation of Geminin, an inhibitor of origin licensing, leads to rereplication in human normal and tumor cells within the same cell cycle, and that GeminIn is required for maintaining genomic stability in human cells. Expand
A p53-dependent checkpoint pathway prevents rereplication.
TLDR
This work investigates how rereplication is prevented in normal mammalian cells and how these mechanisms might be overcome during tumor progression. Expand
