Homologous recombination (HR) is one of the key mechanisms responsible for the repair of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), including those that occur during DNA replication. Recent studies in yeast and mammals have uncovered that the SMC complexes cohesins and Smc5-Smc6 are recruited to induced DSBs, and play a role in the maintenance of genome stability by favouring SCR as the main recombinational DSB repair mechanism. These new results raise intriguing questions such as whether SMC proteins might play a functional role at collapsed replication forks, which may represent the main source of spontaneous recombinogenic damage. A deeper knowledge of the role of SMC proteins in DSB repair should contribute to a better understanding of chromosome dynamics and stability.
