Sažetak
The RecBCD enzyme of Escherichia coli consists of three subunits RecB, RecC and RecD. RecBCD enzyme activities are regulated by its interaction with recombination hotspot Chi. Biochemical and genetic evidence suggest that interaction with Chi affects RecD subunit, and that RecD polypeptide overproduction antagonizes this interaction, suggesting that intact RecD replaces a Chi-modified one. We used bacteria with fragmented chromosomes due to double-strand breaks inflicted by UV and γ -irradiation to explore in which way increased concentrations of RecBCD’ s individual subunits affect DNA metabolism. We confirmed that RecD overproduction alters RecBCD-dependent DNA repair and degradation in E. coli. Also, we found that RecB and RecC overproduction did not affect these processes. To determine the basis for the effects of RecD polypeptide overproduction, we monitored activities of RecBCD enzyme on γ -damaged chromosomal DNA and, in parallel, on λ and T4 2 phage DNA duplexes provided at intervals. We found that γ -irradiated wild-type bacteria became transient, and RecD overproducers permanent recB-/C- phenocopies for processing phage DNA that is provided in parallel. Since this inability of irradiated bacteria to process extrachromosomal DNA substrates coincided in both cases with ongoing degradation of chromosomal DNA, which lasted much longer in RecD overproducers, we were led to conclude that the RecB-/C- phenotype is acquired as a consequence of RecBCD enzyme titration on damaged chromosomal DNA. This conclusion was corroborated by our observation that no inhibition of RecBCD activity occurs in γ -irradiated RecBCD overproducers. Together, these results strongly indicate that RecD overproduction prevents dissociation of RecBCD enzyme from DNA substrate and thus increases its processivity.
