Targeting FEN1 Suppresses the Proliferation of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Cells Through Regulating Alternative End-Joining Pathways.

DNA Cell Biol 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Department of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China.

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by the formation of the fusion gene. The BCR-ABL protein leads to an increased level of reactive oxygen species, which is a major cause of endogenous DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs). CML cells are prone to rely on a highly mutagenic alternative end-joining (Alt-EJ) pathway to cope with enhanced DSBs, which aggravates chromosomal instability. Read More
