  1. pmc Ku must load directly onto the chromosome end in order to mediate its telomeric functions
    Christopher R Lopez
    Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, United States of America
    PLoS Genet 7:e1002233. 2011
    ..The extensive telomere defects observed in these mutants lead us to propose that Ku is an integral component of the terminal telomeric cap, where it promotes a specific architecture that is central to telomere function and maintenance...

    Albert Ribes-Zamora
    Department of Pediatrics, Hematology Oncology Section, Baylor College of Medicine, One Baylor Plaza, BCM225, Houston, Texas 77030 3411, USA
    Nat Struct Mol Biol 14:301-7. 2007
    ..We propose a 'two-face' model for Ku and that divergent evolution of these faces allowed Ku's dual role in NHEJ and telomere maintenance...

    Genetics 166:1651-9. 2004
    ..These data demonstrate that Exo1 can make either positive or negative contributions to telomere function and cell viability, depending on whether telomerase or recombination is utilized to maintain telomere function...
