Abstract
Genome instability is a hallmark of cancer cells. It has been proposed that at early stages of the cancer process, genomic instability is caused by oncogene-induced replication stress, a poorly-understood process characterized with the accumulation of stalled replication forks and gammaH2AX on chromatin. Understanding the origin of chronic replication stress represents a major challenge in cancer biology. We have previously shown that depletion of DNA Topoisomerase 1 or the splicing factor ASF/SF2 in mammalian cells interferes with replication fork progression, activating the DNA damage response and inducing chromosome breaks (Tuduri et al., 2009). Since DNA dam...
