Project Title:Studies on the role of MRN complex in genome stability using cultured mammalian cells.

Fanconi anemia (FA) is an autosomal recessive and X-linked genetic disorder characterized by congenital abnormalities, progressive bone marrow failure and pronounced cancer susceptibility. The FA-BRCA DNA damage response network is comprised of fifteen bonafide disease linked proteins, as well as numerous non FA proteins, that function cooperatively in DNA (ICL) repair.

The hallmark of FA patient cells, as well as BRCA1/2- deficient cells, is hypersensitivity to the clastogenic effects of DNA cross- linking agents such as mitomycin C and cisplatin. Our research is aimed at elucidating the role of HR pathway components in FA cells.
