    ..Current data show that the specific depletion of the human RECQ1 helicase leads to mitotic catastrophe in cancer cells and inhibition of tumor growth in mice...
  2. pmc A prominent β-hairpin structure in the winged-helix domain of RECQ1 is required for DNA unwinding and oligomer formation
    Bojana Lucic

    Nucleic Acids Res 39:1703-17. 2011
    ..Interestingly, two independent protein-protein contacts are required for tetramer formation, one involves the β-hairpin and the other the N-terminus of RECQ1, suggesting a non-hierarchical mechanism of tetramer assembly...

    International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Padriciano 99, 34149 Trieste, Italy
    Mol Cell Biol 30:1382-96. 2010
    ..These results indicate that RECQ1 and RECQ4 are integral components of the human replication complex and play distinct roles in DNA replication initiation and replication fork progression in vivo...
