    Leah Pogorzala
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA
    Genetics 182:699-709. 2009
    ..In addition to this separation of function, we also found that the role of Msh1p in BER is unlikely to be involved in the avoidance of large-scale deletions and rearrangements...

    Naina Phadnis
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, NY 14627 0211, USA
    DNA Repair (Amst) 5:829-39. 2006
    ..In addition, loss of Apn1p also suppressed mitochondrial point mutations. Our work suggests that both Ntg1p and Apn1p generate mutagenic intermediates in the yeast mitochondrial genome...

    Elaine A Sia
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, River Campus Box 270211, Rochester, New York 14627 0211, USA
    DNA Repair (Amst) 4:253-61. 2005
    ..These data indicate that the MSH1 protein, unlike other MutS homologs in yeast, plays no role in DNA repair or recombination during meiosis...

    Mutat Res 595:91-106. 2006
    ..In addition, we demonstrate a novel role for Msh1p in mtDNA transmission, a role not predicted by studies of its nuclear homologs...

    Shona A Mookerjee
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, RC Box 270211, Rochester, NY 14627 0211, USA
    Curr Genet 47:84-99. 2005
    ..Our overall findings suggest that these additional predicted functions of Msh1p, including recombination surveillance and heteroduplex rejection, may be primarily responsible for its essential role in mtDNA stability...
  6. pmc Evidence for a role of FEN1 in maintaining mitochondrial DNA integrity
    LIDZA KALIFA
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, NY 14627, United States
    DNA Repair (Amst) 8:1242-9. 2009
    ..Our findings demonstrate that Rad27p/FEN1 is localized in the mitochondrial compartment of both yeast and mice and that Rad27p has a significant role in maintaining mtDNA integrity...

    Naina Phadnis
    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627, USA

  1. DNA Repair and Mutagenesis in S cerevisiae
    Elaine Sia; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..The experiments in this proposal are aimed at understanding the processes of mutagenesis and repair of mitochondrial DNA in yeast, however, these studies may lead to insights into similar processes in human mitochondrial DNA. ..
