FCH 532 Lecture 14 Quiz Friday on nucleic acid structures, base pairing Extra credit assignment for Friday March 2- Seminar Speaker Matt DeLisa Chapter 30
SOS response SOS response causes cells to stop dividing and repair damaged DNA. LexA and RecA mutants always have the SOS response on. When E. coli is exposed to agents that damage DNA, RecA mediates proteolytic cleavage of LexA. This is induced by RecA binding to ssDNA. LexA is a repressor of 43 genes involved in DNA repair (all proceeded by 20 nt sequence called the SOS box).
Figure 30-59Regulation of the SOS response in E. coli. Page 1180
SOS Repair E. coli Pol III is unable to replicate through lesions (AP sites, thymine dimers), causing a replication fork “collapse” To restore the replication fork, can either induce recombination repair which uses a homologous chromosome as the template or SOS repair. Uses 2 bypass DNA polymreases (Pol IV and PolV). These are error-prone DNA polymerases (lack the 3’ 5’ exonuclease) SOS is a mutagenic process. This is a last resort if DNA has not been repaired by other mechanisms.
Double-strand break (DSB) repair Double-strand breaks (DSBs) in DNA are produced by ionizing radiation and free radical products of oxidative metabolism. Can also occur as intermediates in meiosis. Unrepaired DSBs can lead to cancer or cell death. 2 modes to repair DSBs 1. Recombination repair 2. Nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ)
Nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ) Broken ends are aligned and frayed ends are trimmed or filled in, and their strands ligated. NHEJ in eukaryotes has several proteins: Ku-heterodimer of Ku70 and Ku80 DNA ligase IV Xrcc4 Ku binds to double-stranded breaks binding to DNA’s major and minor grooves. Nucleotide trimming is carried out by ATP-dependent Mre11 complex. Gaps filled in by DNA polymerases and sealed by DNA ligase IV and Xrcc4.

Carcinogens Carcinogens-chemical agents that can cause cancer Up to 80% caused by exposure to these agents Usually damage DNA; likely to induce SOS response, so they are indirect mutagenic agents. High correlation between mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. Ames Test-assays for carcinogenicity Salmonella typhimurium his - strain- must be grown in presence of His. Lack lipopolysaccaride coats and are highly permeable to many substances. Inactivated excision repair systems. Look for reversion to his + phenotype.
Figure 30-63The Ames test for mutagenesis. Page 1183
Ames Test ~10 9 cells spread on plate lacking His. Use a mixture of his - strains to detect base changes, insertions and deletions. Mutagen is place in culture medium that causes some his - strains to revert to his + Mutagenicity is scored as # of colonies less the few spontaneously revertant colonies that occur in the absence of the mutagen. Many noncarcinogens are converted to carcinogens in liver. Small amount of rat liver is added to Ames test to mimic mammalian metaboilsm.
Homologous recombination Defined as the exchange of homologous segments between two DNA molecules. Bacteria are haploid and acquire foreign DNA through conjugation in which DNA is directly transferred from one cell to another via a cytoplasmic bridge. Holliday junction - corresponding strands of two aligned homologous DNA duplexes are nicked and the nicked strands cross over to pair with the nearly complementary strands of the homologous duplex after which the nicks are sealed.
Figure 30-64 The Holliday model of homologous recombination between homologous DNA duplexes. Page 1184
Branch migration-4 strands exchange base pairing partners Formation of Holliday Junction
Resolution of Holliday Junction occurs in 2 ways 2.The cleavage of strands that crossed over exchanges a pair of homologous single-stranded segments. 1.The cleavage of the strands that did not cross over exchanges the ends of the original duplexes to form, after nick sealing, traditional recombinant DNA

Homologous recombination catalyzed by RecA in E. coli recA- E.coli have 10 4 -fold lower recombination rate than wild-type cells. RecA polymerizes cooperatively on ssDNA or dsDNA that has a single- stranded gap. Resulting filaments may contain 1000s of RecA molecules. Bind homologous dsDNA and using ATP catalyze strand exchange.

Recombination repair Damaged replication forks occur at a frequency of at least once per bacterial cell generation and 10 X per eukaryotic cell cycle. DNA lesions that damage replication forks can be repaired through recombination repair. Happens when a replication fork encounters an unrepaired single-strand lesion.

Page 1192 1.DNA replication is stopped at the lesion but continues on the opposing undamaged strand before replisome collapses. 2.Replication fork changes to a Holliday junction (Chicken Foot). 3.Single-strand gap at collapsed replication fork now an overhang is filled in by Pol I 4.Reverse branch migration mediated by RuvAB or RecG yields a reconstituted replication fork.
