The two DNA clamps Rad9/Rad1/Hus1 complex and proliferating cell nuclear antigen differentially regulate flap endonuclease 1 activity


Friedrich-Heineken, E; Toueille, M; Tännler, B; Bürki, C; Ferrari, E; Hottiger, M O; Hübscher, U (2005). The two DNA clamps Rad9/Rad1/Hus1 complex and proliferating cell nuclear antigen differentially regulate flap endonuclease 1 activity. Journal of Molecular Biology, 353(5):980-989.

Abstract

DNA damage leads to activation of several mechanisms such as DNA repair and cell-cycle checkpoints. It is evident that these different cellular mechanisms have to be finely co-ordinated. Growing evidence suggests that the Rad9/Rad1/Hus1 cell-cycle checkpoint complex (9-1-1 complex), which is recruited to DNA lesion upon DNA damage, plays a major role in DNA repair. This complex has been shown to interact with and stimulate several proteins involved in long-patch base excision repair. On the other hand, the well-characterised DNA clamp-proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) also interacts with and stimulates several of these factors. In this work, we compared the effects of the 9-1-1 complex and PCNA on flap endonuclease 1 (Fen1). Our data suggest that PCNA and the 9-1-1 complex can independently bind to and activate Fen1. Finally, acetylation of Fen1 by p300-HAT abolished the stimulatory effect of the 9-1-1 complex but not that of PCNA, suggesting a possible mechanism of regulation of this important repair pathway.
