Protein-protein Interaction (4)

26437079 The SET domain is needed for the 5' end of ss-overhang cleavage with fork and non-fork DNA without affecting the Metnase-DNA interaction. This domain has a positive role in restart of replication fork and the 5' end of ss-overhang cleavage.
25795785 methylation of snRNP70 by SETMAR regulates constitutive and/or alternative splicing
25333365 Metnase may possess an important role in DNA repair, topoisomerase II function, and the maintenance of stemness during colon cancer development.
24655462 293 T transfected with Metnase revealed a large number of rescued plasmids.
24607956 found known and novel SETMAR splice variants to be significantly increased in acute myeloid leukemia
24573677 a single mutation DDN(610) --> DDD(610), which restores the ancestral catalytic site, results in loss of function in Metnase
22231448 phosphorylation of Metnase S495 differentiates between these two functions, enhancing DSB repair and repressing replication fork restart.
21491884 a role for Metnase's endonuclease activity in promoting the joining of noncompatible ends
21187428 DNA repair protein Metnase (also SETMAR), which has a SET histone methylase domain, localized to an induced DSB and directly mediated the formation of H3K36me2 near the induced DSB
21124928 Data show that DBN1, SETMAR and HIG2 are direct transcriptional targets of the SOX11 protein.
20800603 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20457750 results establish Metnase as a key factor that promotes restart of stalled replication forks, and implicate Metnase in the repair of collapsed forks.
20416268 hPso4, once it forms a complex with Metnase, negatively regulates Metnase's TIR binding activity
19458360 myeloid leukemia cells fail to arrest at the mitotic decatenation checkpoint, and their progression through this checkpoint is regulated by the DNA repair component Metnase (also termed SETMAR)
18790802 Metnase physically interacts and co-localizes with Topoisomerase IIalpha, the key chromosome decatenating enzyme.
18263876 hPso4 is necessary to bring Metnase to the DSB sites for its function(s) in DNA repair
17877369 Results suggest that Metnase's DNA cleavage activity, unlike those of other eukaryotic transposases, is not coupled to its sequence-specific DNA binding.
17403897 The activities of the SETMAR protein on transposon ends are described.
17130240 SETMAR is unlikely to catalyze transposition in the human genome, although the nicking activity may have a role in the DNA repair phenotype.
16989604 These data suggest that vectors based on the Himar1 transposable element, in conjunction with the hyperactive mutant transposase C9, may be suitable vectors for gene therapy applications.
16332963 Metnase is a nonhomologous end-joining repair protein that regulates genomic integration of exogenous DNA and establishes a relationship among histone modification, DNA repair, and integration.
