An essential role for dNTP homeostasis following CDK-induced replication stress

Abstract:

Replication stress is a common feature of cancer cells, and thus a potentially important therapeutic target. Here we show that CDK-induced replication stress is synthetic lethal with mutations disrupting dNTP homeostasis in fission yeast. Wee1 inactivation leads to increased dNTP demand and replication stress through CDK-induced firing of dormant replication origins. Subsequent dNTP depletion leads to inefficient DNA replication, DNA damage, and to genome instability. Cells respond to this re...
