Consistent with previous observations, proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) promotes DNA synthesis by calf thymus DNA polymerase delta (pol delta) past several chemically defined template lesions including model abasic sites, 8-oxo-deoxyguanosine (dG) and aminofluorene-dG (but not acetylaminofluorene-dG). This synthesis is potentially mutagenic. The(More)
Whatman 3MM paper was chemically modified to generate nickel-charged iminodiacetic acid paper (Ni2+-IDA paper). Bacteria were transformed with Escherichia coli expression plasmids coding for either unmodified proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) or PCNA containing a genetically engineered polyhistidine tract (his-tag) located at its NH2 terminus. They(More)
A proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA)-dependent complex, detectable after nondenaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, is formed between calf thymus DNA polymerase delta (pol delta) and synthetic oligonucleotide template-primers containing a mispaired nucleotide at the 3'-terminal position of the primer. This complex is indistinguishable in(More)
DNA polymerase epsilon (pol epsilon) was purified to apparent homogeneity from human placentas. The purified enzyme contains a single polypeptide of approximately 170 kDa (apparent mass) and has both DNA polymerase and 3'-5'-exonuclease activities. Competitive inhibition studies indicate that like DNA polymerases alpha and delta (pol alpha and pol delta,(More)
The relative positions of components of the DNA-dependent DNA polymerase delta (pol delta).proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA).DNA complex were studied. We have shown that pol delta incorporates nucleotides close to a template biotin-streptavidin complex located 5' (downstream) to the replicating complex in the presence or absence of PCNA.(More)
Three direct assays, polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis-band mobility shift, agarose gel electrophoresis-band mobility shift, and nitrocellulose filter binding, were established to study complexes formed among mammalian DNA polymerase delta (pol delta), proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), and synthetic oligonucleotide template-primers. In all(More)
Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), a protein intimately involved in both replication and repair, has been identified in eukaryotes at all levels of evolution. Is primary sequence, Drosophila melanogaster PCNA is 73% identical to mammalian PCNA. Moreover, it is able to substitute for mammalian PCNA in at least one intricate cell-free replication(More)
Human proliferating cell nuclear antigen (hPCNA) containing a single amino acid substitution at position 85, that of lysine for glutamate (E85K), was compared to wild-type (wt) hPCNA for its ability to promote DNA synthesis by purified DNA polymerase delta (pol delta) both on unmodified templates and past chemically defined template base lesions(More)
BACKGROUND We and others have shown four distinct and presumably related effects of mammalian proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) on DNA synthesis catalyzed by mammalian DNA polymerase delta(pol delta). In the presence of homologous PCNA, pol delta exhibits 1) increased absolute activity; 2) increased processivity of DNA synthesis; 3) stable binding(More)
