Targeting Cancer with a Lupus Autoantibody

Dr. Lius laboratory aims to understand how defects in DNA synthesis and repair contribute to cancer pathogenesis and aging. Specifically, her team focuses on a set of proteins belonging to the RECQ family of DNA helicases are among the cancer suppressors linked to DNA repair, replication and genome maintenance. During the course of evolution, RECQ genes appear to have been amplified and diverged from a single copy of the RecQ gene in bacteria and yeast to five RECQ homologs in humans. The human RECQ proteins share many similar biochemical properties in vitro, yet these proteins are not redundant, as mutations in different RECQ proteins lead to different clinical syndromes including premature aging. In addition, a defect in one RECQ protein is sufficient to cause cell transformation and tumorigenesis, and this defect cannot be compensated by other RECQ proteins. Dr. Lius long-term agenda in dissecting the functions of individual RECQ proteins in human cells and comparing the similarities and differences among the RECQ proteins is to understand what aspects of genome maintenance and DNA metabolism are required for normal development and cancer prevention.
