XPD, at the crossroads of repair, transcription and mitosis

Recherche |

The XPD protein is known to be one of the subunits of TFIIH, a multiprotein complex involved in DNA repair and transcription of protein-coding genes. In this study published in the journal Science Advances, the researchers show that XPD can also play a role in chromosome segregation during mitosis, independently of its presence in TFIIH. Thus, this work highlights the multiple functions played by XPD and allows a better understanding of the etiology of diseases associated with it, such as Moon Child disease.
