SLX4 gains weight with SUMO in genome maintenance.

Résumé

Replication stress has emerged as a key driver of oncogenesis but also represents an Achilles’ heel of cancer cells. Newly reported SUMO binding and SUMO ligase functions of the DNA repair protein SLX4 that influence the outcome of replication stress open new avenues for investigating the roles played by SLX4 in tumorigenesis.
