PCNA monoubiquitylation and DNA polymerase eta ubiquitin-binding domain are required to prevent 8-oxoguanine-induced mutagenesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Nucleic acids research | May 7, 2009

7,8-Dihydro-8-oxoguanine (8-oxoG) is an abundant and mutagenic DNA lesion. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the 8-oxoG DNA N-glycosylase (Ogg1) acts as the primary defense against 8-oxoG. Here, we present evidence for cooperation between Rad18-Rad6-dependent monoubiquitylation of PCNA at K164, the damage-tolerant DNA polymerase eta and the mismatch repair system (MMR) to prevent 8-oxoG-induced mutagenesis. Preventing PCNA modification at lysine 164 (pol30-K164R) results in a dramatic increase in GC to TA mutations due to endogenous 8-oxoG in Ogg1-deficient cells. In contrast, deletion of RAD5 or SIZ1 has little effect implying that the modification of PCNA relevant for preventing 8-oxoG-induced mutagenesis is monoubiquitin as opposed to polyubiquitin or SUMO. We also report that the ubiquitin-binding domain (UBZ) of Pol eta is essential to prevent 8-oxoG-induced mutagenesis but only in conjunction with a functional PCNA-binding domain (PIP). We propose that PCNA is ubiquitylated during the repair synthesis reaction after the MMR-dependent excision of adenine incorporated opposite to 8-oxoG. Monoubiquitylation of PCNA would favor the recruitment of Pol eta thereby allowing error-free incorporation of dCMP opposite to 8-oxoG. This study suggests that Pol eta and the post-replication repair (PRR) machinery can also prevent mutagenesis at DNA lesions that do not stall replication forks.

Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is the world''s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We''ve saved millions of lives with our groundbreaking work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. People''s chances of surviving cancer have doubled in the last 40 years, and we''ve been at the heart of that progress. But more than one in three of us will still get cancer at some point. Our vital work, funded entirely by the public, will help ensure that millions more people survive. Our aim is to save lives from cancer. More people are beating cancer than ever before thanks to our work and your support. We work in the areas where we can make the most impact: * Research we support the work of over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK to investigate all aspects of cancer. * Information we work to prevent cancer and help people cope with its effects by providing information for cancer patients and their families, health professionals and the general public. * Influencing public policy we campaign to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda. Cancer Research UK is a registered charity in England and Wales (1089464) and in Scotland (SC041666). Registered as a company limited by guarantee in England & Wales No. 4325234.
