Abstract

Two processes involving DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) are the repair of DNA damage induced by ionizing radiation, and V(D)J recombination, the genomic rearrangement that creates antigen-receptor diversity in vertebrates. Recent evidence indicates that DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK), which is activated by DNA ends, is a central component of both the DNA DSB repair and V(D)J recombination machineries.
