Adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) is a fatal malignancy of CD4+ T-cells infected with human T-cell leukemia virus type I (HTLV-1). ATL cells often exhibit random gross chromosomal rearrangements that are associated with the induction and improper repair of double-stranded DNA breaks (DSBs). The viral oncoprotein Tax has been reported to impair DSB repair, but is not shown to be consistently expressed throughout all phases of infection. The viral oncoprotein HTLV-1 basic leucine zipper factor (HBZ) is consistently expressed prior to and throughout disease progression, but it is unclear whether it also influences DSB repair...

PURPOSE: Low temperature at exposure has been shown to act in a radioprotective manner at the level of cytogenetic damage. It was suggested to be due to an effective transformation of DNA damage to chromosomal damage at low temperature. The purpose of the study was to analyze the kinetics of aberration formation during the first hours after exposing human peripheral blood lymphocytes to ionizing radiation at 0.8 °C and 37 °C. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To this end, we applied the technique of premature chromosome condensation...

The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase related protein kinases (PIKKs) are key to the regulation of a variety of eukaryotic cellular processes including DNA repair and growth regulation. While these massive proteins had long resisted structural analysis, recent advances in electron cryo-microscopy have now facilitated structural analysis of the major examples of PIKKs, including mTOR, DNA-PK, ATM, ATR and TRAPP/Tra1. In these PIKKs, the carboxy-terminal kinase domains and their proximal regions are structurally conserved...

Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is radioresistant to X‑rays due to powerful cellular DNA damage repair mechanisms. DNA‑dependent protein kinase (DNA‑PK) is a key enzyme involved in DNA damage repair and the phenomenon and molecular mechanism of NSCLC radionsensitivity were investigated following inhibition of DNA‑PK activity. In the present study A549 cells were treated with the DNA‑PK inhibitor NU7026 and/or siRNA directed against ataxia telangiectasia mutated (ATM), followed by exposure to 4 Gy X‑ray irradiation...

In mammalian cell culture, the Golgi apparatus fragment upon DNA damage. GOLPH3, a Golgi component, is a phosphorylation target of DNA-PK after DNA damage and contributes to Golgi fragmentation. The function of the yeast ( Saccharomyces cerevisiae ) ortholog of GOLPH3, Vps74, in the DNA damage response has been little studied, although genome-wide screens suggested a role at telomeres. In this study we investigated the role of Vps74 at telomeres and in the DNA damage response. We show that Vps74 decreases the fitness of telomere defective cdc13-1 cells and contributes to the fitness of yku70Δ cells...

Radiotherapy is a primary treatment modality for glioblastomas (GBMs). Because DNA-PKcs is a critical factor in the repair of radiation-induced double strand breaks (DSBs), this study evaluated the potential of VX-984, a new DNA-PKcs inhibitor, to enhance the radiosensitivity of GBM cells. Treatment of the established GBM cell line U251 and the GBM stem-like cell (GSC) line NSC11 with VX-984 under in vitro conditions resulted in a concentration-dependent inhibition of radiation-induced DNA-PKcs phosphorylation...

Katsunori Sugimoto
Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase-related kinases (PIKKs), are structurally related to phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (lipid kinase), but possess protein kinase activities. PIKKs include ATM, ATR, DNA-PK, mTOR and SMG1, key regulators of cell proliferation and genome maintenance. TRRAP, which is devoid of protein kinase activity, is the sixth member of the PIKK family. PIKK family members are gigantic proteins in the range of 300-500 kDa. It has become apparent in the last decade that the stability or maturation of the PIKK family members depends on a molecular chaperone called the Tel2-Tti1-Tti2 (TTT) complex...

When Fanconi Anemia (FA) proteins were depleted in human U2OS cells with integrated DNA repair reporters, we observed decreases in homologous recombination (HR), decreases in mutagenic non-homologous end joining (m-NHEJ) and increases in canonical NHEJ, which was independently confirmed by measuring V(D)J recombination. Furthermore, depletion of FA proteins resulted in reduced HR protein foci and increased NHEJ protein recruitment to replication-associated DSBs, consistent with our observation that the use of canonical NHEJ increases after depletion of FA proteins in cycling cells...

DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) is a very large holoenzyme comprised of the p470 kDa DNA-PK catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs ) and the Ku heterodimer consisting of the p86 (Ku 80) and p70 (Ku 70) subunits. It is best known for its nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) activity, which repairs double-strand DNA (dsDNA) breaks (DSBs). As expected, the absence of DNA-PK activity results in sensitivity to ionizing radiation, which generates DSBs and defect in lymphocyte development, which requires NHEJ of the V(D)J region in the immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor loci...

Proper functions of Zic proteins are essential for animals in health and disease. Here, we summarize our current understanding of the molecular properties and functions of the Zic family across animal species and paralog subtypes. Zics are basic proteins with some posttranslational modifications and can move to the cell nucleus via importin- and CRM1-based nucleocytoplasmic shuttling mechanisms. Degradation is mediated by the ubiquitin proteasome system. Many Zic proteins are capable of binding to two types of target DNA sequences (CTGCTG-core-type and GC-stretch-type)...

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) - known to be resistant to genotoxic radiation and chemotherapy - are fundamental to therapy failure and cancer relapse. Here, we reveal that glioma CSCs are hypersensitive to radiation, but a temporal DNA repair mechanism converts the intrinsic sensitivity to genomic instability and treatment resistance. Transcriptome analysis identifies DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) as a predominant DNA repair enzyme in CSCs. Notably, DNA-PK activity is suppressed after irradiation when ROS induce the dissociation of DNA-PKcs with Ku70/80, resulting in delayed DNA repair and radiosensitivity; subsequently, after ROS clearance, the accumulated DNA damage and robust activation of DNA-PK induce genomic instability, facilitated by Rad50-mediated cell-cycle arrest, leading to enhanced malignancy, CSC overgrowth, and radioresistance...

Background: DNA-PK and PARP inhibitors sensitize cancer cells to chemo- and radiotherapy. ETS transcription factors (EWS-FLI1) have been described as biomarkers for PARP-inhibitor sensitivity. Sensitivity to single agent PARP inhibitors has so far been limited to homologous recombination repair (HRR) deficient tumors, exploiting synthetic lethality. Results: In clonogenic assays, single agent rucaparib LD50 values for continuously exposed cells were similar to those observed in HRR-defective cells (CAPAN-1 cell line, BRCA2 defective); however, both ES cell lines (TC-71, CADO-ES1) had functional HRR...

The DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) complex plays a pivotal role in non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) repair. We investigated the mechanism of NU7441, a highly selective DNA-PK inhibitor, in NHEJ-competent mouse embryonic fibroblast (MEF) cells and NHEJ-deficient cells and explored the feasibility of its application in radiosensitizing nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells. We generated wild-type and DNA-PKcs-/- MEF cells. Clonogenic survival assays, flow cytometry, and immunoblotting were performed to study the effect of NU7441 on survival, cell cycle, and DNA repair...

Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide (GLP) is a well-known traditional Chinese medicine, known for its anti-cancer and immunomodulatory properties. The present study aims to investigate whether GLP has a therapeutic effect on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells exposed to radiation. Immunofluorescence was used to detect the nuclei, the protein expression was measured by western blot analysis and flow cytometry was used to detect the rate of cell apoptosis. GLP treatment was demonstrated to enhance radiation-induced growth inhibition and apoptotic death of HCC cells...

Misfolded protein in the amygdala is a neuropathologic feature of Alzheimer disease and many other neurodegenerative disorders. We examined extracts from human amygdala (snap-frozen at autopsy) to investigate whether novel and as yet uncharacterized misfolded proteins would be detectable. Polypeptides from the detergent-insoluble, urea-soluble protein fractions of amygdala were interrogated using liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry. Among the detergent-insoluble proteins identified in amygdala of demented subjects but not controls were Tau, TDP-43, Aβ, α-synuclein, and ApoE...

Upon DNA binding the poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase family of enzymes (PARPs) add multiple ADP-ribose subunits to themselves and other acceptor proteins. Inhibitors of PARPs have become an exciting and real prospect for monotherapy and as sensitizers to ionising radiation (IR). The action of PARPs are reversed by poly(ADP-ribose) glycohydrolase (PARG). Until recently studies of PARG have been limited by the lack of an inhibitor. Here, a first in class, specific, and cell permeable PARG inhibitor, PDD00017273, is shown to radiosensitize...

Despite aggressive chemotherapy including mitoxantrone and etoposide, relapse occurs for almost half of children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Since both drugs inhibit topoisomerase II and cause DNA double strand breaks, resistance could be achieved by enhanced DNA damage repair (DDR), via homologous recombination (HR) and/or non-homologous end joining (NHEJ). An important source of extrinsic chemoresistance is the bone marrow stroma. We aimed to reveal intrinsic and stroma-induced signaling pathways that contribute to chemoresistance...

The absorption of ionizing radiation by living cells can directly disrupt atomic structures, producing chemical and biological changes. It can also act indirectly through radiolysis of water, thereby generating reactive chemical species that may damage nucleic acids, proteins, and lipids. Together, the direct and indirect effects of radiation initiate a series of biochemical and molecular signaling events that may repair the damage or culminate in permanent physiological changes or cell death. In efforts to gain insight into the mechanisms underlying these effects, we observed a prominent upregulation of the Translationally Controlled Tumor Protein (TCTP) in low dose/low dose rate (137)Cs γ-irradiated cells that was associated with adaptive responses that reduced chromosomal damage to a level lower than what occurs spontaneously...
