The spatio-temporal regulation of Polo-like kinase 1 in DNA repair

Abstract:

The G2/M cell cycle kinase Polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) was recently discovered to play an active role in DNA repair by phosphorylating the RAD51 recombinase to aid homologous recombination. This occurs at a much shorter timeframe than the well-characterised downregulation of PLK1 activity via the DNA damage checkpoint. In this thesis, I expand upon this by investigating the regulation of PLK1 during this earlier timeframe post-damage. Laser microirradiation experiments observe fluorescently-...
