Selective targeting of homologous recombination deficiency

Abstract:

Homologous recombination (HR) is a key DNA repair pathway essential for cell viability. Counter-intuitively, HR deficiency can trigger carcinogenesis. Understanding the mechanisms that allow the rampant proliferation of HR-deficient tumour cells is crucial for the development of improved therapeutic modalities to selectively inhibit the outgrowth of these cells.

Recently, we identified extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1 (ERK1) as a factor required for the proliferation of BRCA2...
