Cockayne syndrome (CS) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by photosensitivity, developmental defects, neurological abnormalities, and premature aging. Mutations in CSA (ERCC8), CSB (ERCC6), XPB, XPD, XPG, XPF (ERCC4) and ERCC1 can give rise to clinical phenotypes resembling classic CS. Using a yeast two-hybrid (Y2H) screening approach, we identified LEO1 (Phe381-Ser568 region) as an interacting protein partner of full-length and C-terminal (Pro1010-Cys1493) CSB in two independent screens.
