26408825 studies reveal the ALKBH2 binding interface of PCNA and indicate that both germline and somatic ALKBH2 variants could have cellular effects on ALKBH2 function in DNA repair.
25797601 It was shown for first time that DNA glycosylase ALKBH2 can repair DNA adduct 1,N2-ethenoguanine.
23972994 ABH2 knockdown impairs rDNA transcription and leads to increased single-stranded and double-stranded DNA breaks in the rDNA genes.
23279696 ALKBH2 is an upstream molecule of the oncoprotein, MUC1, and regulates cell cycle and EMT, resulting in progression of urothelial carcinomas.
23258843 Overexpression of ALKBH2 is associated with enhanced resistance to temozolomide in glioblastoma.
22659876 combination of duplex interrogation and oxidation chemistry allows ALKBH2 to detect and process diverse lesions efficiently and correctly
22079122 The non-enzymatic binding of AAG to 3,N(4)-ethenocytosine specifically blocks ALKBH2-catalyzed repair of 3,N(4)-ethenocytosine but not that of methylated ALKBH2 substrates.
21510633 X-ray absorption spectroscopy structural investigation of early intermediates in the mechanism of DNA repair by human ABH2
21155885 ABH2 is downregulated in a subset of gastric cancers, and might be involved in the molecular mechanism of gastric cancer through inhibiting the proliferation of gastric cancer cells.
20714506 This work has provided a detailed understanding of the structural features of the single-stranded DNA and double-stranded DNA preferences of ABH2 and ABH3.
