Ultrafine anaphase bridges, broken DNA and illegitimate recombination induced by a replication fork barrier.
Most DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) in S- and G2-phase cells are repaired accurately by Rad51-dependent sister chromatid recombination. However, a minority give rise to gross chromosome rearrangements (GCRs), which can result in disease/death. What determines whether a DSB is repaired accurately or inaccurately is currently unclear. We provide evidence that suggests that perturbing replication by a non-programmed protein-DNA replication fork barrier results in the persistence of replication ...Expand abstract
