26878724 Patients with defective NUDT15 alleles showed excessive levels of thiopurine active metabolites and toxicity. [meta-analysis]
26405151 NUDT15 c.415C>T increases risk of 6-mercaptopurine induced myelosuppression during maintenance therapy in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
26238318 Depletion of NUDT15 has no effect on incorporation of 8-oxo-dGTP into DNA and does not impact cancer cell survival in cell lines tested. NUDT15 is not a biologically relevant 8-oxo-dGTPase
26033531 Event-free survival did not significantly differ by NUDT15 genotype. rs116855232 is an important determinant of 6-MP myelotoxicity in Japanese children with ALL and may represent the most robust toxicity-related locus in Asians to date.
25624441 Describe a germline variant in NUDT15 strongly associated with mercaptopurine intolerance in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which may have implications for treatment individualization in this disease.
25108385 Authros identified a nonsynonymous SNP in NUDT15 (encoding p.Arg139Cys) that was strongly associated with thiopurine-induced early leukopenia (odds ratio (OR) = 35.6; P(combined) = 4.88 x 10(-94)).
20144704 human MTH1, MTH2, and NUDT5 proteins act as a defense against the mutagenesis induced by oxidized dGTP.
19419956 Data demonstrate for the first time that PCNA is protected by this newly identified partner molecule MTH2, which is related to DNA synthesis and cell cycle progression.
