DNA Double-Strand Break Repair : Molecular Characterization of Classical and Alternative Nonhomologous End Joining in Mitochondrial and Cell-free Extracts
Maintenance of genomic integrity and stability is of prime importance for the survival of an organism. Upon exposure to different damaging agents, DNA acquires various lesions such as base modifications, single-strand ...
The Role of Saccharomyces Cerevisiae MRX Complex and Sae2 in Maintenance of Genome Stability
In eukaryotes, the repair of DSBs is accomplished through two broadly defined processes: Non-Homologous End Joining (NHEJ) and Homologous Recombination (HR). The central step of HR is pairing and exchange of strands between ...
Role of Mammalian RAD51 Paralogs in Genome Maintenance and Tumor Suppression
My research was focused on understanding the importance of mammalian RAD51 paralogs in genome maintenance and suppression of tumorigenesis. The investigation carried out during this study has been addressed toward gaining ...
Elucidation of the Role of Nse1, a RING Domain Containing Component of Smc5/6 complex, in Maintenance of Chromosome Stability in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Structural Maintenance of Chromosomes (SMC) proteins are a highly conserved class of proteins required for the maintenance of genome stability and regulate nearly all aspects of chromosome biology. Eukaryotes, such as the ...
Role of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis RecG Helicase in DNA Repair, Recombination and in Remodelling of Stalled Replication Forks
Tuberculosis, caused by the infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis remained as a major global health challenge with one third of world population being infected by this pathogen. M. tuberculosis can persist for decades ...
