High impact information on Tb11.01.0360

  • We show that the RAD51-independent pathway is capable of recombining DNA substrates with very short lengths of sequence homology and in some cases aberrant recombination reactions can be detected using such microhomologies [1].
  • Much of VSG switching appears to rely on a widely conserved DNA repair pathway called homologous recombination, driven by RAD51 [2].
  • Distinct roles for two RAD51-related genes in Trypanosoma brucei antigenic variation [2].
