Accumulation of DNA damage leading to adult stem cell exhaustion has been proposed to be a principal mechanism of ageing. Here we address this question by taking advantage of the highly specific role of DNA ligase IV in the repair of DNA double-strand breaks by non-homologous end-joining, and by the discovery of a unique mouse strain with a hypomorphic Lig4Y288C mutation. The Lig4Y288C mouse, identified by means of a mutagenesis screening programme, is a mouse model for human LIG4 syndrome,...[Show more]
