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

Abstract TRAIP is a key factor involved in the DNA damage response (DDR), homologous recombination (HR) and DNA interstrand crosslink (ICL) repair. However, the exact functions of TRAIP in these processes in mammalian cells are not fully un... Read More
The work by Distinguished Professor Kyungjae Myung's team has been published in PNAS.
A new therapy called CINDELA (Cancer-Specific InDel Attacker) employs CRISPR-Cas9 to kill cancer cells without affecting normal tissues.
Diagnosis of cancers may be one of the worst news to patients and their families. Conventional treatment options such as radiation and chemotherapies often kill not only cancer cells but also normal cells, which results in painful side effe... Read More
