Poverty Marks a Gene, Predicting Depression
New study of high-risk teens reveals a biological pathway for depression.
World’s Largest Coral Gene Database
‘Genetic toolkit’ will help shed light on which species survive climate change.
Early Genetic Changes in Premalignant Colorectal Tissue Identified
Findings point to drivers of early cancer development, targets for cancer prevention therapies.
Scientists Find Evidence That Cancer Can Arise Changes
Researchers at Rockefeller University have found a mutation that affects the proteins that package DNA without changing the DNA itself can cause a rare form of cancer.
Modified Microalgae Converts Sunlight into Valuable Medicine
A special type of microalgae can soon produce valuable chemicals such as cancer treatment drugs and much more just by harnessing energy from the sun.
Breakthrough Approach to Breast Cancer Treatment
Scripps scientists have designed a drug candidate that decreases growth of breast cancer cells.
Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
A Guide to CRISPR Gene Activation
A comparison of synthetic gene-activating Cas9 proteins can help guide research and development of therapeutic approaches.
Gene That Lowers Heart Attack Risk Identified
Individuals with a rare twelve-letter deletion from a gene on chromosome 17 have significantly reduced non-HDL cholesterol levels and a 35% lower than average risk of heart disease.
Testing Non-Breast/Ovarian Cancer Genes
Researchers have found that expanding gene panel beyond breast/ovarian cancer genes in these patients does not add any clinical benefit. Instead, testing has produced more questions than answers.

DNA Repair Pathways

There are over 150 human proteins that have been categorized as bona fide DNA Repair proteins. These fall into 14 general categories, including the classical DNA Repair pathways of Base Excision Repair (BER), Direct Reversal of Damage, Mismatch Excision Repair (MMR), Nucleotide Excision Repair (NER), Homologous Recombination (HR), Non-Homologous End-Joining (NHEJ) and the Fanconi Anemia/DNA crosslink repair pathway. There are proteins that modulate nucleotide pools, DNA polymerases, and editing and processing nucleases, the Rad6 pathway; proteins that modulate chromatin structure, DNA Repair genes/proteins defective in diseases & conserved DNA Damage Response. Advances in the DNA Repair field inevitably lead to additions to each category as new proteins are found that contribute to the repair of DNA damage or to the cellular response to DNA damage, such as MRG15 involvement in HR via its interaction with PALB2 or DNA2, recently identified as a structure-specific nuclease involved in nuclear and mitochondrial genome maintenance.
