• Normal development of mice lacking PAXX, the paralogue of XRCC4 and XLF 

      Gago-Fuentes, Raquel; Xing, Mengtan; Sæterstad, Siri; Sarno, Antonio; Dewan, Alisa Elinsdatter; Beck, Carole; Bradamante, Stefano; Bjørås, Magnar; Oksenych, Valentyn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      DNA repair consists of several cellular pathways which recognize and repair damaged DNA. The classical nonhomologous DNA end-joining (NHEJ) pathway repairs double-strand breaks in DNA. It is required for maturation of both ...
    • Robust DNA repair in PAXX-deficient mammalian cells 

      Dewan, Alisa Elinsdatter; Xing, Mengtan; Lundbæk, Marie Benner; Gago-Fuentes, Raquel; Beck, Carole; Aas, Per Arne; Liabakk, Nina-Beate; Sæterstad, Siri; Khac Thanh Phong, Chau; Kavli, Bodil Merete; Oksenych, Valentyn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      To ensure genome stability, mammalian cells employ several DNA repair pathways. Nonhomologous DNA end joining (NHEJ) is the DNA repair process that fixes double-strand breaks throughout the cell cycle. NHEJ is involved in ...
    • Synthetic lethality between DNA repair factors Xlf and Paxx is rescued by inactivation of Trp53 

      Castañeda-Zegarra, Sergio; Xing, Mengtan; Gago-Fuentes, Raquel; Sæterstad, Siri; Oksenych, Valentyn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) is a DNA repair pathway that senses, processes and ligates DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) throughout the cell cycle. During NHEJ, core Ku70 and Ku80 subunits bind DSBs as a heterodimer ...
