This chapter illustrates the strategies of signal amplification and transmission and the multiple targets in cell cycle and repair in various species. The signal transduction mechanisms rely on the activation of protein kinases as effector proteins by phosphorylation. Other proteins, termed mediators, are critical for converting sensor input into such kinase modification. The best-understood example for such collaboration is represented by the Rad53 kinase and Rad9 as its mediator of checkpoint activation in . It discusses the downstream targets that are regulated by the damage-sensing and signal transmission systems. The discussion of targets involved in cell cycle progression is separated from the discussion of targets affecting aspects of repair more directly. The chapter also discusses p53 in damage-signaling pathways, and presents an integrated view of various cell cycle checkpoints and their regulation. In conclusion, it is appropriate to mention at least two additional areas, which arguably can be classified as checkpoint responses; these are the active inhibition of transcription and translation in response to DNA damage.

Role of Rad9 as a mediator of Rad53 kinase activation. In this model, activation of Mec1 (targeted by Lcd1) has already occurred and substrate selection by interaction with damage sensor proteins has been enabled, possibly by a mechanism similar to the one shown in Fig. 20–15. Mec1 phosphorylates Rad9, which binds near damaged DNA sites and forms dimers or multimers. Phosphorylated Rad9 is bound by Rad53. Rad53 will autophosphorylate in possibly after initial direct phosphorylation and activation by Mec1. Hyperphosphorylated and fully active Rad53 species emerge which separate from Rad9, and Rad9 is free to interact again with hypophosphorylated Rad53.

Similarities of the roles of mammalian MDC1 and 53BP1. Both are phosphorylated by ATM, both are suspected to be possible mediators of ATM-dependent CHK2 activation, and both interact physically and functionally with -γ-H2AX. CHK2 activation by autophosphorylation is not shown here (see Fig. 21–3 ). Phosphorylation of H2AX depends on ATM following DSB induction and on ATR and its targeting factor ATRIP following UV radiation. MDC1 interacts with the MRN complex and strengthens ATM binding to DSB.

IR-induced p53 phosphorylation at certain sites is reduced in AT cells. Immunoblots with the indicated phosphospecific polyclonal antibodies were performed at the times indicated following 8-Gy γ-irradiation (IR) treatment of human lymphoblast cultures. Reduced phosphorylation was found for Ser9, Ser15, Ser20, and Ser46 in AT cells but not or much less so for Ser6, Ser33, Ser315, and Ser392. The first row shows the level of total p53 detected with a monoclonal antibody. (Adapted from reference .)

Defective G arrest in p53-deficient cells following exposure to IR. (A) The dot diagram visualizes the distribution of cells among different cycle stages in an unsynchronized culture of embryonic mouse fibroblasts before and after X-ray treatment. Cells were pulse-labeled with BrdU and analyzed by flow cytometry (see Fig. 20–8). The axis indicates total DNA content (detected by propidium iodide staining), whereas the axis shows the amount of incorporated BrdU (detected by binding of a BrdU-specific antibody conjugated to a fluorescent dye). Cells in S phase are characterized by high BrdU levels and an intermediate total DNA content. A depletion of cells in S phase is evident 16 h after irradiation with 2 Gy of normal cells and those carrying a heterozygous p53 defect (). However, there is no indication of G/S arrest in cells homozygous for a p53 defect (— / —). (B) This type of analysis is quantitated by plotting the percentage of cells remaining in S phase 16 h after irradiation with 0 or 2 Gy. (Adapted from reference .)

Scheme for p53-mediated maintenance of G/S arrest in response to DNA damage. As described, DNA damage activates the PI3 kinase-related ATM and ATR kinases, which in turn activate CHK1 and CHK2. Modification of p53, assisted by MDM2 phosphorylation, results in p53 activation and stabilization of its level. The transcription of the gene is increased. Accumulated p21 blocks CDK2-cyclin E (Cyc E) and other Cdk activities. As a consequence, RB1 is not hyperphosphorylated and the E2F transcription factor controlling S-phase-specific transcripts is not released. (Adapted from reference .)

Scheme for rapid G arrest mechanisms in response to DNA damage. Following activation of effector kinases CHK1 and CHK2, CDC25A phosphatase is phosphorylated (left). Phosphorylation results in recognition and ubiquitylation of CDC25A by the SCF complex and ultimately to degradation by the proteasome. The absence of phosphatase CDC25 leads to a failure to dephosphorylate and activate CDK2. One consequence is the inability of CDC45 to bind to the origin (ORI) recognition complex, a necessary precondition for replicon initiation. The cell will not enter S phase from G or, if already in S phase, will not continue origin activation. The other proposed mechanism (right) is based on damage-induced destabilization of the cyclin D1 (CycD1) subunit of CDK4 by an unknown mechanism. In many mammalian somatic cells, abundant cyclin D1 is used to bind p21 at a stage where the dependency of cell cycle progression switches from the CDK4-cyclin D1 to the CDK2-cyclin E (Cyc E) complex (see Fig. 20–1). Destabilization of cyclin D1 results in release of p21 from this reservoir, and the CDK2-cyclin E complex will be inactivated. (Ub, ubiquitin) (Adapted from reference .)

Influence of Rad53-dependent checkpoint mechanisms on DNA replication in the presence of MMS damage. G-synchronized cells with density-labeled DNA are released into MMS-containing medium. Progression of DNA synthesis initiated at an early replicon (ARS607) of chromosome X is followed by separation of chromosomal DNA into heavy (HH) and intermediate-density (HL, heavy-light) fractions and the use of probes 1 to 6 to detect the presence of sequences downstream of the ARS607 origin. In the wild type (WT), a slow but ultimately complete shift from HH to HL density is found throughout the region, indicating complete replication of the 70-kb monitored area. Two differences are found in the checkpoint-deficient mutants (as well as in mutants [not shown]). At 60 min, there is evidence of a progressing replication fork entering distal from the studied region (from the right of area 6 [arrow 1]). The corresponding origin is silenced in the MMS-treated wild type. Also, there is evidence of a fraction of DNA that is never completely replicated (clearly visible if area 3 at 90 through 240 min is compared to the wild type [arrow 2]). This is indicative of replication fork collapse. (Adapted from reference .)

Parallel pathways regulate the mammalian IR-induced S-phase checkpoint(s). One well-understood pathway functions by degradation of the CDC25 phosphatase following ATM-mediated phosphorylation. The MRN complex, BRCA1, and FANCD2 seem to be involved in alternative pathways. As discussed in the text, an important target is SMC1, which is phosphorylated by ATM in a reaction that depends on the MRN complex and BRCA1. The mechanism of SMC1 and FANCD2 action is unknown.

Regulation of G/M arrest in response to DNA damage. Dephosphorylation of Tyr15 (and Thr14 [not shown]) is required for activity of the mitotic Cdk Cdc2 of Wee1 and Mik1 kinases phosphorylate Tyr15, and Cdc25 is the activating phosphatase. Cdc25 appears to be the main target of DNA damage regulation. It is phosphorylated by the Mec1/ATR homolog Rad3. Phosphorylated Cdc25 is subject to binding by the 14-3-3 protein Rad24 and is actively excluded from the nucleus.

Branched pathway of M-phase arrest in in response to DNA damage. In response to DNA strand breakage and the resulting Mec1 activation, branches mediated by the effector kinases Chk1 and Rad53 represent different mechanisms and timing of arrest. The Chk1 pathway blocks cohesin cleavage and thus chromosome separation at the metaphase-anaphase transition. The Rad53 pathway inhibits mitotic exit by preventing B-type cyclin degradation and other associated events. In both cases, substrate recognition and protein degradation by the anaphase-promoting complex (APC) are impaired.
