Nuclear receptor coactivator NCOA3 regulates ultraviolet radiation-induced DNA damage and melanoma susceptibility.

Cancer Res 2021 Mar 25. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Cancer Center, CPMC Research Institute

Melanoma occurs as a consequence of inherited susceptibility to the disease and exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and is characterized by uncontrolled cellular proliferation and a high mutational load. The precise mechanisms by which UVR contributes to the development of melanoma remain poorly understood. Here we show that activation of nuclear receptor coactivator 3 (NCOA3) promotes melanomagenesis through regulation of UVR sensitivity, cell cycle progression, and circumvention of the DNA damage response (DDR).

Nucleic Acids Res 2021 Feb 28. Epub 2021 Feb 28.

Department of Biochemistry, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA.

Molecular machines within cells dynamically assemble, disassemble and reorganize. Molecular interactions between their components can be observed at the single-molecule level and quantified using colocalization single-molecule spectroscopy, in which individual labeled molecules are seen transiently associating with a surface-tethered partner, or other total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy approaches in which the interactions elicit changes in fluorescence in the labeled surface-tethered partner. When multiple interacting partners can form ternary, quaternary and higher order complexes, the types of spatial and temporal organization of these complexes can be deduced from the order of appearance and reorganization of the components.

NF-κB-induced R-loop accumulation and DNA damage select for nucleotide excision repair deficiencies in adult T cell leukemia.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2021 Mar;118(10)

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, MD 20814;

Constitutive NF-κB activation (NF-κB) confers survival and proliferation advantages to cancer cells and frequently occurs in T/B cell malignancies including adult T cell leukemia (ATL) caused by human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1). Counterintuitively, NF-κB by the HTLV-1 transactivator/oncoprotein Tax induces a senescence response, and HTLV-1 infections in culture mostly result in senescence or cell-cycle arrest due to NF-κB How NF-κB induces senescence, and how ATL cells maintain NF-κB and avert senescence, remain unclear. Here we report that NF-κB by Tax increases R-loop accumulation and DNA double-strand breaks, leading to senescence. Read More

Ribosomal protein S3 associates with the TFIIH complex and positively regulates nucleotide excision repair.

Cell Mol Life Sci 2021 Apr 19;78(7):3591-3606. Epub 2021 Jan 19.

Lab of Biochemistry, Division of Life Sciences, Korea University, Seoul, 02841, Korea.

In mammalian cells, the bulky DNA adducts caused by ultraviolet radiation are mainly repaired via the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway; some defects in this pathway lead to a genetic disorder known as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). Ribosomal protein S3 (rpS3), a constituent of the 40S ribosomal subunit, is a multi-functional protein with various extra-ribosomal functions, including a role in the cellular stress response and DNA repair-related activities. We report that rpS3 associates with transcription factor IIH (TFIIH) via an interaction with the xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group D (XPD) protein and complements its function in the NER pathway.
