This week in PLoS Genetics, an international team led by investigators at the National Human Genome Research Institute reports evidence to suggest that loss-of-function mutations in Atad5 — the human ortholog of yeast Elg1 — "are sufficient to cause genomic instability and tumorigenesis." The NHGRI-led team found that the heterozygous Atad5+/m mice they generated "displayed high levels of genomic instability in vivo," while Atad5+/m mouse embryonic fibroblasts showed "molecular defects in PCNA deubiquitination in response to DNA damage, as well as DNA
