Overview of NPM1 functions in various DNA damage response pathways. NPM1 has been shown to modulate the BER pathway as well as the translesion synthesis by modulating the levels of apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1 (APE1) and polymerase eta. In the absence of NPM1 or with the expression of non-phosphorylatable NPM1, double-strand break repair by homologous recombination fails to be completed, however the exact mechanism of NPM1 function in these pathway remain to be fully elucidated
