FRA16D common chromosomal fragile site oxido-reductase (FOR/WWOX) protects against the effects of ionising radiation in Drosophila

O'Keefe, Louise V; Liu, Yinghong; Perkins, Alison; Dayan, Sonia; Saint, Robert; Richards, R A


Fragile sites are chromosomal structures that have been proposed to have a determining role in cancer-associated DNA instability. The human WWOX gene spans the FRA16D chromosomal fragile site, the common minimal region of homozygous deletion found in adenocarcinomas and three out of five translocation breakpoints in multiple myeloma. Transcripts from the alternatively spliced WWOX gene encode proteins with common N-terminal WW domains and variable homology to the oxidoreductase family of...[Show more]
