Regulation of DNA metabolic enzymes upon induction of preB cell development and V(D)J recombination: up-regulation of DNA polymerase delta.


Jessberger, R; Schär, P; Robins, P; Ferrari, E; Riwar, B; Hübscher, U (1997). Regulation of DNA metabolic enzymes upon induction of preB cell development and V(D)J recombination: up-regulation of DNA polymerase delta. Nucleic Acids Research, 25(2):289-296.

Abstract

Withdrawal of interleukin-7 from cultured murine preB lymphocytes induces cell differentiation including V(D)J immunoglobulin gene rearrangements and cell cycle arrest. Advanced steps of the V(D)J recombination reaction involve processing of coding ends by several largely unidentified DNA metabolic enzymes. We have analyzed expression and activity of DNA polymerases alpha, beta, delta and epsilon, proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), topoisomerases I and II, terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT) and DNA ligases I, III and IV upon induction of preB cell differentiation. Despite the immediate arrest of cell proliferation, DNA polymerase delta protein levels remained unchanged for approximately 2 days and its activity was up-regulated several-fold, while PCNA was continuously present. Activity of DNA polymerases alpha,beta and epsilon decreased. Expression and activity of DNA ligase I were drastically reduced, while those of DNA ligases III and IV remained virtually constant. No changes in DNA topoisomerases I or II expression and activity occurred and TdT expression was moderately increased early after induction. Our results render DNA polymerase delta a likely candidate acting in DNA synthesis related to V(D)J recombination in lymphocytes.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
