|Objective of the Project||
The DNA damage response (DDR) network is essential for maintenance of genome integrity and provides an intrinsic barrier preventing tumorigenesis. Here we will investigate the role of two major classes of protein phosphatases PP2Cdelta and PP1 in acute and recovery phases of the DDR and address their involvement in cancer predisposition. Further, we will elucidate the role of Cdc7/Dbf4 kinase in stabilization of DNA replication forks and in cellular response to replication stress. This project will increase our knowledge of general molecular mechanisms of cell function and identify new pathogenic mechanisms contributing to cancer development and potentially also novel candidate biomarkers and pharmacological targets.
