High expression of the breast cancer susceptibility gene BRCA1 in long-lived termite kings

Figure 3. Schematic model for accelerated DNA repair pathways in termite kings. (A-C) DNA damage response (DDR; A), homologous recombination and non-homologous end-joining (HR and NHEJ, respectively; B), and mismatch repair and alkylation damage repair (MMR and ADR, respectively; C) are shown as schematic models. The proteins encoded by the king-specific genes (cluster iv in Figure 2) are highlighted in bold.
