MUS81 Antibodies, cDNA Clones Research Reagents

MUS81 (MUS81 Structure-Specific Endonuclease Subunit, also known as SLX3), located on 11q13, is a Protein Coding gene. The encoded protein belongs to the XPF (ERCC4) family of endonucleases and plays a critical role in the resolution of recombination intermediates during DNA repair after inter-strand cross-links, replication fork collapse, and DNA double-strand breaks. MUS81 contains an N-terminal DEAH helicase domain, an excision repair cross complementation group 4 (ERCC4) endonuclease domain, and two tandem C-terminal helix-hairpin-helix domains.

    MUS81 の背景知識

    Methyl methanesulfonate and UV sensitive gene clone 81 (Mus81) is a critical DNA repair gene that has been implicated in the development of several cancers including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). MUS81 may be a potential therapeutic target for epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Mus81 is a well-conserved DNA structure-specific endonuclease that belongs to the XPF/Rad1 family of proteins that are involved in DNA nucleotide excision repair. MUS81 is a key endonuclease involved in homologous recombination (HR) repair after DNA double-strand damage. The nucleolytic activity of MUS81 endonuclease is required for replication fork restart under replication stress elicited by exogenous treatments. Mus81 forms a heterodimer with a non-catalytic subunit, Mms4, in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Eme1/EME1 in Schizosaccharomyces pombe and mammals).
