Multiple DNA Repair Articles
DNA Repair is Highly Coordinated, at Creation Evolution Headlines, is a condensed reference source on recent papers related to DNA repair. The linked articles cover a variety of issues including specialized locations where DNA repair occurs, the identification of a gene whose function entails suppressing tumors, a chromatin remodeling pathway, DNA checkpoints and the regulation of a checkpoint pathway by chromatin remodeling.
Two particularly interesting bits of information include mention of the highly specified sensitivity of RNA Polymerase II to DNA damage (possibly the most specified protein with reference to damage recognition) and the efficiency of the zebrafish at detecting and repairing lesions. Sources for the different articles are documented in this concise news item.
