The recent relationship of BRCA1 and 53BP1 The p53-binding protein 1 (53BP1) is a DNA damage response factor, which is recruited to nuclear structures at the site of DNA damage. DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) are mutations that are detrimental to cell viability and genome stability, and m... Read full blog post.
RAD51: The cell's 'Mr. Fix-it' RAD51 is a recombinase protein encoded by RAD51 gene in humans. Human RAD51 family members are highly similar to bacterial RecA and yeast Rad51, both biochemically and structurally. It is a 339-amino acid protein that plays an important role in homolo...

NUP153 & 53BP1: A Novel DNA Repair Pathway Mediating DNA damage is a crucial process, and one of the most important cellular guards against cancer. In response to DNA damage, sophisticated cellular machinery is recruited to repair the breaks, and if it fails, the cell is committed to death. De... Read full blog post.
