Title: The KYxxL motif in Rad17 protein is essential for the interaction with the 9–1–1 complex

Abstract

ATR-dependent DNA damage checkpoint is the major DNA damage checkpoint against UV irradiation and DNA replication stress. The Rad17–RFC and Rad9–Rad1–Hus1 (9–1–1) complexes interact with each other to contribute to ATR signaling, however, the precise regulatory mechanism of the interaction has not been established. Here, we identified a conserved sequence motif, KYxxL, in the AAA+ domain of Rad17 protein, and demonstrated that this motif is essential for the interaction with the 9–1–1 complex. We also show that UV-induced Rad17 phosphorylation is increased in the Rad17 KYxxL mutants. These data indicate that the interaction with the 9–1–1 complex is not required for Rad17 protein to be an efficient substrate for the UV-induced phosphorylation. Our data also raise the possibility that the 9–1–1 complex plays a negative regulatory role in the Rad17 phosphorylation. We also show that the nucleotide-binding activity of Rad17 is required for its nuclear localization. - Highlights: • We have identified a conserved KYxxL motif in Rad17 protein. • The KYxxL motif is crucial for the interaction with the 9–1–1 complex. • The KYxxL motif is dispensable or inhibitory for UV-induced Rad17 phosphorylation. • Nucleotide binding of Rad17 is required for its nuclear localization.

  • Lamin A is an important component of nuclear architecture in mammalian cells. Mutations in the human lamin A gene lead to highly degenerative disorders that affect specific tissues. In studies directed towards understanding the mode of regulation of the lamin A promoter, we have identified an essential GT motif at -55 position by reporter gene assays and mutational analysis. Binding of this sequence to Sp transcription factors has been observed in electrophoretic mobility shift assays and by chromatin immunoprecipitation studies. Further functional analysis by co-expression of recombinant proteins and ChIP assays has shown an important regulatory role for CREB-binding proteinmore » in promoter activation, which is mediated by the GT motif.« less
  • Highlight: • The N-terminal leucine-zipper motif in PTRF/cavin-1 determines caveolar association. • Different cellular localization of PTRF/cavin-1 influences its serine 389 and 391 phosphorylation state. • PTRF/cavin-1 regulates cell motility via its caveolar association. - Abstract: PTRF/cavin-1 is a protein of two lives. Its reported functions in ribosomal RNA synthesis and in caveolae formation happen in two different cellular locations: nucleus vs. plasma membrane. Here, we identified that the N-terminal leucine-zipper motif in PTRF/cavin-1 was essential for the protein to be associated with caveolae in plasma membrane. It could counteract the effect of nuclear localization sequence in the molecule (AAmore » 235–251). Deletion of this leucine-zipper motif from PTRF/cavin-1 caused the mutant to be exclusively localized in nuclei. The fusion of this leucine-zipper motif with histone 2A, which is a nuclear protein, could induce the fusion protein to be exported from nucleus. Cell migration was greatly inhibited in PTRF/cavin-1{sup −/−} mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs). The inhibited cell motility could only be rescued by exogenous cavin-1 but not the leucine-zipper motif deleted cavin-1 mutant. Plasma membrane dynamics is an important factor in cell motility control. Our results suggested that the membrane dynamics in cell migration is affected by caveolae associated PTRF/cavin-1.« less
  • Rc is a DNA binding protein with dual specificities for the V(D)J recombination signal sequences and for the B motif of the immunoglobulin kappa chain gene enhancer. The largest Rc transcript present in lymphoid cells/tissues is {approximately} 9 kb. Molecular cloning and sequence determination for 8822 bp of mouse Rc cDNA revealed an open reading frame of 2282 amino acids and long 5{prime}- and 3{prime}- untranslated regions. The derived amino acid sequence contains multiple DNA and protein interaction domains. Composite ZAS structures with tandem zinc fingers, and acidic motif, and a Ser/Thr-rich segment are located near the N-terminal and themore » C-terminal regions. The middle region of Rc contains a lone zinc finger, an acidic motif, a Ser-rich region, a nucleus localization signal, and GTPase motifs. Cloning and characterization of a mouse Rc gene show that the Rc cDNA corresponds to seven exons located in a genomic region spanning 70 kb. Exon 2 is exceptionally large, with 5487 bp. cDNA cloning and Northern blot analyses revealed multiple Rc transcripts, probably generated by alternative splicings. Sequence comparisons show that Rc belongs to a ZAS protein family that is involved in gene transcription and/or DNA recombination. The major histocompatibility complex class I gene enhancer binding proteins MBP1 and MBP2 are other representatives of this ZAS protein family. 43 refs., 6 figs., 2 tabs.« less
