. BLM and SLX4 play opposing roles in recombination-dependent replication at human telomeres. EMBO J. 2017;36:2907-2919 pubmed publisher
..Our data are consistent with ALT being a conservative DNA replication process, analogous to break-induced replication, which is dependent on BTR and counteracted by SLX4 complex-mediated resolution events. ..
Sobinoff A, Pickett H. Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres: DNA Repair Pathways Converge. Trends Genet. 2017;33:921-932 pubmed publisher
..Here, we review recent discoveries regarding the ALT mechanism, and discuss how DNA repair pathways converge to maintain the length and functional integrity of telomeres in ALT cancers. ..
