Rad23 is a nucleotide-excision repair protein with a previously unknown biochemical function. We determined that yeast and human Rad23 inhibited multi-ubiquitin (Ub) chain formation and the degradation of proteolytic substrates. Significantly, Rad23 could be co-precipitated with a substrate that contained a short multi-Ub chain. The UV sensitivity of rad23Δ(More)
Rad23 is a DNA repair protein that promotes the assembly of the nucleotide excision repair complex. Rad23 can interact with the 26S proteasome through an N-terminal ubiquitin-like domain, and inhibits the assembly of substrate-linked multi-ubiquitin (multi-Ub) chains in vitro and in vivo. Significantly, Rad23 can bind a proteolytic substrate that is(More)
The 26S proteasome degrades a broad spectrum of proteins and interacts with several nucleotide excision repair (NER) proteins, including the complex of Rad4 and Rad23 that binds preferentially to UV-damaged DNA. The rate of NER is increased in yeast strains with mutations in genes encoding subunits of the 26S proteasome, indicating that it could negatively(More)
Rad23 protein interacts with the nucleotide excision-repair (NER) factor Rad4, and the dimer can bind damaged DNA. Rad23 also binds ubiquitinated proteins and promotes their degradation by the proteasome. Rad23/proteasome interaction is required for efficient NER, although the specific role of the Ub/proteasome system in DNA repair is unclear. We report(More)
DNA damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) radiation can be removed by nucleotide excision repair through two sub-pathways, one general (GGR) and the other specific for transcribed DNA (TCR), and the processing of unrepaired lesions trigger signals that may lead to cell death. These signals involve the tumor suppressor p53 protein, a central regulator of cell(More)
P53 activation is one of the main signals after DNA damage, controlling cell cycle arrest, DNA repair and apoptosis. We have previously shown that confluent nucleotide excision repair (NER)-deficient cells are more resistant to apoptosis induced by ultraviolet irradiation (UV). Here, we further investigated the effect of cell confluence on UV-induced(More)
