Genetic evidence for anatomically modern humans (AMH) out of Africa before 75 thousand years ago (ka) and in island southeast Asia (ISEA) before 60 ka (93-61 ka) predates accepted archaeological records of occupation in the region. Claims that AMH arrived in ISEA before 60 ka (ref. 4) have been supported only by equivocal or non-skeletal evidence.

Cockayne syndrome complementation group B (CSB) protein is engaged in transcription-coupled repair (TCR) of UV induced DNA damage and its deficiency leads to progressive multisystem degeneration and premature aging. Here, we show that human CSB-deficient cells are hypersensitive to physiological concentrations (1-10 microM) of a lipid peroxidation product, trans-4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE), and in response to HNE they develop a higher level of sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) in comparison to the wild-type cells. HNE-DNA adducts block in vitro transcription by T7 RNA polymerase, as well as by HeLa cell-free extracts.

Cbl is a member of the large family of LysR-type transcriptional regulators (LTTRs) common in bacteria and found also in Archaea and algal chloroplasts. The function of Cbl is required in Escherichia coli for expression of sulphate starvation-inducible (ssi) genes, associated with the biosynthesis of cysteine from organic sulphur sources (sulphonates). Here, we report the crystal structure of the cofactor-binding domain of Cbl (c-Cbl) from E.
