9789401042390: DNA Repair and Recombination

Genomic instability is a major threat to living organisms. To counteract the damaging effects posed by endogenous and environmental agents, such as chemicals or radiation, micro-organisms devote several percent of their genome to encode proteins that function in the repair and recombination of DNA. For many years, a relatively small group of scientists have carefully delineated the molecular mechanisms of these repair processes, using the simplest model systems available, namely Escherichia coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. These studies, which until recently had only moderate impact outside of the field, now provide the cornerstone for exciting new research into analogous processes in human cells. The reason for this is the revelation that the biochemical pathways for the accurate replication, repair and recombination of DNA have been conserved through evolution. New research shows that human cells use DNA repair mechanisms that are analogous to those found in bacteria to overcome the damaging effects of environmental mutagens and carcinogens. Of particular significance is the observation that certain cancers are caused by defects in DNA repair enzymes. For example, the human inherited non-polyposis colon cancer is now known to be caused by defects in the enzymes that repair DNA mismatches. Because much detailed information has been accumulated in studies of analogous mismatch repair proteins from bacteria, rapid progress can now be made.

Product Description:

The processes of DNA repair and recombination are currently of widespread interest. This book, which arises from a Royal Society discussion meeting, presents an authoritative and very comprehensive overview of the subject by the leading researchers in the field. Key topics discussed include initiation, control and detailed mechanism of homologous recombination, V(D)J recombination and site-specific recombination, regulation and mechanisms of gene amplification and the role of nucleotide excision repair proteins in repairing DNA damage.
