High impact information on Ercc1

  • We find that Ercc1 mutants are identical to mei-9 mutants in sensitivity to DNA-damaging agents, but have a less severe reduction in the number of meiotic crossovers [1].
  • The nucleotide excision repair gene mus210 maps nearby (51E-F) but is distinct from Ercc1 [2].
  • We report here the identification of the genes encoding the XPG and ERCC1 homologues (XPG(Dm) and ERCC1(Dm)) [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Ercc1
