DNA-RNA hybrids, or R loops, are structures that generate genomic instability, a common feature of tumor cells. This article states that the human protein UAP56 / DDX39B has a key role in the elimination of DNA-RNA hybrids that are accidentally generated during transcription, guaranteeing the integrity of the genome, as well as a correct gene expression.
