Genetic control of DNA repeat expansions and mutagenesis.

Shah, Kartik.

Abstract: Expansions of simple DNA repeats are known to cause several devastating neurodegenerative diseases in humans. Experimental systems mimicking large-scale human expansions have (1) proven difficult to develop and (2) been only moderately successful. Different cellular processes - replication, repair, homologous recombination and transcription, have been implicated in repeat instability in ... read more
