DNA damage responses: Beyond double-strand break repair

Academic Article


  • The RAG endonuclease generates DNA double strand breaks during antigen receptor gene assembly, an essential process for B- and T-lymphocyte development. However, a recent study reveals that RAG endonuclease activity affects natural killer cell function, demonstrating that such double strand breaks, and the responses they elicit, may have broad cellular effects.
