26221031 EXO1 and FEN1 cleaved the substrate at the boundary between the single-stranded 5' flap and the duplex, whereas FAN1 incised it three to four nucleotides in the double-stranded region.
26052075 Detected FAN1 mutations in approximately 3% of families who met the Amsterdam criteria for hereditary colorectal cancer and had mismatch repair-proficient cancers with no previously associated mutations.
25922199 FAN1 efficiently promoted DNA incision at the proper site of RPA-coated 5'-flapped DNA. Therefore, FAN1 possesses the ability to promote the ICL repair of 5'-flapped DNA covered by RPA.
25500724 The crystal structures of human FAN1 in complex with a 5' flap DNA substrate show that two FAN1 molecules form a head-to-tail dimer to locate the lesion, orient the DNA, and unwind a 5' flap for subsequent incision.
25430771 In this work, FAN1-DNA crystal structures and biochemical data reveal that human FAN1 cleaves DNA successively at every third nucleotide
25135477 Results show that FAN1 utilizes its nuclease activity-in cooperation with the BLM-FANCD2 complex-to promote replication fork restart and simultaneous suppression of new origin firing.
24344280 FAN1 encodes a DNA repair enzyme, thus implicating abnormalities in DNA repair in the susceptibility to schizophrenia or autism
22854063 FAN1 might be a new mitotic substrate of APC/CCdh1 that plays a key role during mitotic exit.
22772369 By exome sequencing, we identified mutations in FAN1 as a cause of karyomegalic interstitial nephritis, a disorder that serves as a model for renal fibrosis.
22611161 Our results suggest that FAN1 has a minor role in interstrand crosslink repair compared with true Fanconi anemia genes and exclude FAN1 as a novel FA gene.
21858661 Two FAN1 variants do not appear to be causal for breast cancer.
21115814 Data show that FAN1 in DT40 cells participates in the processing of damage induced by interstrand cross-linking-generating agents also independently of the classical FA pathway.
20935496 Data show that FAN1 is a nuclear protein and forms DNA-damage-induced foci, which appear to be at stalled replication forks as denoted by RPA colocalization.
20671156 study characterizes FANI which promotes DNA interstrand cross-linking repair in a manner strictly dependent on its ability to accumulate at or near sites of DNA damage and that relies on mono-ubiquitylation of the FANCI-FANCD2 complex
20603073 FAN1 colocalizes at sites of DNA damage with the ID complex in a manner dependent on FAN1's ubiquitin-binding domain (UBZ), the FANCI-FAND2 (ID) complex, and monoubiquitination of FANCD2.
20603016 KIAA1018 is a 5'-->3' exonuclease and a structure-specific endonuclease that preferentially incises 5' flaps; like cells from FA patients, human cells depleted of KIAA1018 are sensitized to ICL-inducing agents and display chromosomal instability.
20603015 Study describes how a highly conserved protein, KIAA1018/MTMR15/FAN1, that interacts with, and is recruited to sites of DNA damage by, the monoubiquitinated form of FANCD2.
