10 Examples of deletion mutations

11 F1-2 Replication fidelity F1 Mutaagenesis Mutation relevant 1.Spontaneous errors in DNA replication is very rare, one error per 10 10 base in E. coli. Important for preserve the genetic information from one generation to the next

12 Molecular mechanisms for the replication fidelity 1.DNA polymerase: Watson-Crick base pairing 2.3’  5’ proofreading exonuclease. 3.RNA priming: proofreading the 5’ end of the lagging strand 4.Mismatch repair (F3) F1 Mutaagenesis

13 by E. coli polymerase Proofreading F1 Mutaagenesis

14 F1-3&4: Mutagens F1 Mutaagenesis Mutation relevant Cause DNA damage that can be converted to mutations.

15 Physical mutagens High-energy ionizing radiation: X-rays and g-rays  strand breaks and base/sugar destruction Nonionizing radiation : UV light  pyrimidine dimers Chemical mutagens Base analogs: direct mutagenesis Nitrous acid: deaminates C to produce U Alkylating agents Arylating agents Lesions-indirect mutagenesis (F2) F1 Mutaagenesis

16 Base analogs: derivatives of the normal bases incorporated in DNA, altering base pairing properties. Nitrous acid: deaminates C to produce U, resulting in G·C  A·U

17 F1-3&4: Mutagenesis F1 Mutaagenesis The molecular process in which the mutation is generated. Note: the great majority of lesions introduced by chemical and physical mutagens are repaired by one or more of the error-free DNA repair mechanisms before the lesions is encounter by a replication fork

18 Direct mutagenesis The stable, unrepaired base with altered base pairing properties in the DNA is fixed to a mutation during DNA replication. F1 Mutaagenesis

19 5-BrU : G : A enol form Br OH H O Br Keto form H O AGCTTCCTA TCGAAGGAT AGCTBCCTA TCGAAGGAT 1.Base analog incorporation AGCTBCCTA TCGAGGGAT AGCTTCCTA TCGAAGGAT 2.1st round of replication AGCTBCCTA TCGAAGGAT AGCTCCCTA TCGAGGGAT 3.2nd round of replication A·T  G·C transition F1 Mutaagenesis

20 Indirect mutagenesis The mutation is introduced as a result of an error-prone repair. Translesion DNA synthesis to maintain the DNA integrity but not the sequence accuracy: when damage occurs immediately ahead of an advancing fork, which is unsuitable for recombination repair (F4), the daughter strand is synthesized regardless of the the base identity of the damaged sites of the parental DNA. F1 Mutaagenesis

21 E. coli translession replication: SOS response: Higher levels of DNA damage effectively inhibit DNA replication and trigger a stress response in the cell, involving a regulated increase (induction) in the levels of a number of proteins. This is called the SOS response. 1.Some of the induced proteins, such as the UvrA and UvrB proteins, have roles in normal DNA repair pathways. 2.A number of the induced proteins, however, are part of a specialized replication system that can REPLICATE PAST the DNA lesions that block DNA polymerase III. back F1 Mutaagenesis

22 Proper base pairing is often impossible and not strictly required at the site of a lesion because of the SOS response proteins, this translesion replication is error-prone. The resulting increase in mutagenesis does not contradict the general principle that replication accuracy is important (the resulting mutations actually kill many cells). This is the biological price that is paid, however, to overcome the general barrier to replication and permit at least a few mutant cells to survive.

40 The response is adaptive because it is induced in E. coli by low levels of alkylating agents and gives increased protection against the lethal and mutagenic effects of the high doses DNA repair
