Disease relevance of ATKU70/KU70


High impact information on ATKU70/KU70

  • We report the molecular characterization of the KU70 and KU80 genes in Arabidopsis and describe the consequences of a Ku70 deficiency [2].
  • The KU70 gene also plays a role in maintaining telomere length [1].
  • In other organisms the KU70 gene has been shown to play a role in the repair of DNA damage induced by ionising radiation (IR) and by radiomimetic chemicals such as methylmethane sulfonate (MMS) [1].
