- Repressive and non-repressive chromatin at native telomeres in Saccharomyces cerevisiaeEsther R Loney
Institute of Genetics, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK

- In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, yKu and subtelomeric core X sequences repress homologous recombination near telomeres as part of the same pathwayMarcus E Marvin
Institute of Genetics, University of Nottingham, Medical School, Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham, UK
Genetics 183:441-51, 1SI-12SI. 2009..Furthermore, core X bestowed this protection as part of the same pathway as yKu. Our findings implicate a role for both yKu and core X in stabilizing the genome against recombination events involving telomeric sequences...
