Their findings have been published in the online version of Nucleic Acids Research on November 22, 2023.
Abstract R-loops are three-stranded nucleic acid structures that can cause replication stress by blocking replication fork progression. However, the detailed mechanism underlying the collision of DNA replication forks and R-loops remains el... Read More
The work by Distinguished Professor Kyungjae Myung has been published in the online version of Nucleic Acids Res. on September 22, 2023.
Abstract Homologous recombination (HR) requires bidirectional end resection initiated by a nick formed close to a DNA double-strand break (DSB), dysregulation favoring error-prone DNA end-joining pathways. Here we investigate the role of th... Read More

Distinguished Professor Kyungjae Myung's research team discovers a new function of mismatch repair protein MSH2-MSH3 in DNA double-strand break repair.
Their findings have been published in the May 2023 issue of Nucleic Acids Research.
DNA is well known as the blueprint of life, necessary for an organism to facilitate living processes. DNA can be damaged by various factors such as radical metabolites, radiation, and some toxic chemicals. As DNA is a molecule consisting of... Read More

DNA replication is essential for living organisms to faithfully deliver genetic information from parental cells to daughter cells. Many proteins are assembled on the parental DNA to work as replication machineries. Among them, the prolifera... Read More
Discovering DNA molecules directly interact with one another based on sequence.
Appearing in the recent edition of Nature Communications.
The prevailing hypothesis has suggested that the functions of DNA, such as the way the DNA is organized, largely depend on its interactions with protein molecules. However, a new study, affiliated with UNIST finds that DNA molecules directl... Read More
