Cell Repair Uses Chromosome Scanner to Protect Against Cancer

By identifying a type of scanner protein that is used to look for any damaged chromosomes, researchers at the University of Copenhagen have made a new discovery that illuminates the DNA repair process of homologous recombination (HR), which is important to cancer prevention. The cellular repair process, which is crucial for ridding cells of damaged DNA and preventing cancer, involves two repair systems: error-free homologous recombination (HR) and mutagenic non-homologous end-joining. Homologous...
