Impaired repair activity of a truncated DNA polymerase beta protein.

Abstract:

DNA polymerase beta (polbeta) is an essential enzyme for gap filling synthesis in damaged DNA template involved in base excision repair pathway. A truncated polbeta protein is expressed in primary colorectal and breast adenocarcinomas. To determine a possible alteration in the functions of the enzyme, a human cell line named HeLapolbetadelta expressing the truncated form of polbeta has been established. These cells revealed a significantly reduced level of repair activity evaluated by gap filling synthesis and polbeta activity. More importantly, the HeLapolbetadelta cells are hypersensitive to MNNG, a DNA alkylating agent. It appears from the responses that the gap filling synthesis of WT cells, a HeLa cell line overexpressing wild-type polbeta protein, was inhibited by HeLapolbetadelta protein.
