E-GEOD-66176 - The NuA4 complex promotes Translesion Synthesis (TLS) - mediated DNA damage tolerance
Released on 21 February 2015, last updated on 28 February 2015
DNA lesions can block a replication fork, leading to its collapse and gross chromosomal rearrangements. To circumvent such outcomes, DNA damage tolerance (DDT) pathways become engaged, allowing the replisome to bypass the lesion and complete S phase in the presence of unrepaired damage. Here we demonstrate a newly identified role for NuA4, including complex components Esa1 and Yng2, on the Translesion Synthesis (TLS) branch of DDT. Moreover, Our data suggest that NuA4 functionality within the tolerance pathway is likely direct as genome-wide transcriptional analysis with esa1-L254P mutants showed little changes in the expression of TLS factors compared to wild type during MMS treatment. When Yng2 expression is restricted to G2/M, cell viability and mutagenesis rates are restored to the levels measured when only the error-free branch of DDT is disrupted, indicating that the critical role of NuA4 in TLS functions in G2, after chromosomal replication is complete. Lastly, disruption of HTZ1, the Saccharomyces cerevisiae histone variant H2A.Z and target of NuA4, exhibits mutagenic rates of reversion that are comparable to the levels measured with NuA4 complex mutants, esa1-L254P and yng2Δ. The esa1-L254P strain was compared to wild type through a series of microarrays utilizing dye swaps with and without treatment of MMS. These included synchronized cells in G1 and S phase through alpha factor treatment. Four unique microarrays were performed each with dye swaps, comparing wild type to esa1-L254P in G1 and S phase with and without treatment with MMS. As a set of controls, four microarrays were performed comparing identical strains with and without MMS in G1 or S phase.
