    Collapse Overview
    Gross chromosomal rearrangements (GCRs), including chromosomal translocations, inversions and other rearrangements, are a hallmark of human cancers. The goal of my laboratory is to study the specific signaling pathways, utilizing phosphorylation, sumoylation and ubiquitination that act to maintain genome integrity. We chose Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system due to its available genetic assays and because it allows facile biochemical and proteomic studies. Studies in my laboratory have focused on two areas: 1) the DNA damage checkpoint, and 2) protein sumoylation and ubiquitination in genome maintenance. A convergence of genetic, biochemical and proteomic approaches are being pursued to study the molecular mechanisms of signaling pathways that specifically prevent genome rearrangements.

    Research Focus Areas:

  • Biochemistry and Structural Biology

  • Cell Division and Cell Cycle Control

  • DNA Replication and Repair

  • Genetics and Genomics

  • Signal Transduction

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
