Nussenzweig for H2ax<SUP>-/-</SUP> MEFs, Genentech for K63-specific antibodies, W.A. van Cappellen of the Optical Imaging Centre, ErasmusMC, for help with the quantification of foci, and T. Brummelkamp, F. van Leeuwen, colleagues and members of the Sixma laboratory for critical reading of the manuscript. These studies were funded by the ERC Advanced grant, EU project Ubiregulators, KWF 2006-3476 to T.K.S., Dutch Organization for Scientific Research ZonMW Veni 917-96-120 to J.A.M., NWO Vidi 864.08.011 to E.C., and KWF 2007-3877. F.M. designed and performed all experiments and wrote the manuscript. J.H.A.V. contributed to cell-based experiments and discussions. J.A.M., W.V., and E.C. supervised immunofluorescence experiments and imaging. J.A.M. performed quantifications of immunofluorescence data. W.J.vD. assisted in purification and western blots. P.I. cloned and purified the RNF8 RING domain. T.K.S. designed and supervised experiments and wrote the manuscript. All authors critically read the paper.
