SLX4, a coordinator of structure-specific endonucleases, is mutated in a new Fanconi anemia subtype

DNA interstrand crosslink repair requires several classes of proteins, including structure-specific endonucleases and Fanconi anemia proteins. SLX4, which coordinates three separate endonucleases, was recently recognized as an important regulator of DNA repair. Here we report the first human individuals found to have biallelic mutations in SLX4. These… CONTINUE READING
