Damage tolerance mechanisms, which allow the bypass of DNA lesions during replication, are controlled in eukaryotic cells by mono- and poly-ubiquitination of the DNA polymerase cofactor PCNA (proliferating-cell nuclear antigen). In the present review, I will summarize our current knowledge of the enzymatic machinery for ubiquitination of PCNA and the way in which the modifications affect PCNA function during replication and lesion bypass in different organisms. Using the budding yeast as a… 

Figures from this paper

Timing and spacing of ubiquitin‐dependent DNA damage bypass
Cooperation of replication Protein A with the ubiquitin ligase Rad18 in DNA damage bypass
TLDR
The interactions between Rad18, RPA and DNA are examined in more detail and their contribution to the activation of DNA damage bypass is discussed.
PCNA Ubiquitination Is Important, But Not Essential for Translesion DNA Synthesis in Mammalian Cells
TLDR
It is shown that UV-induced Rpa foci, indicative of single-stranded DNA regions caused by UV, accumulate faster and disappear more slowly in PcnaK 164R/K164R cells, which are resistant to PCNA ubiquitination, compared to P cna+/+ cells, consistent with a TLS defect.
Involvement of a chromatin remodeling complex in damage tolerance during DNA replication
TLDR
These findings establish a mechanistic link between INO80 and DNA damage tolerance pathways, indicating that chromatin remodeling is important for accurate DNA replication.
Mechanisms Regulating Cellular Responses to DNA Topoisomerase I-Targeted Agents
TLDR
Investigations of single camptothecin (CPT)-Top1-DNA complexes with molecular tweezers suggest drug-induced accumulation of positive supercoils in advance of the replication machinery that may contribute to CPT toxicity.
DNA Damage Tolerance Pathways in Human Cells: A Potential Therapeutic Target
TLDR
The major DDT pathways are summarized, the relationship between damage tolerance and carcinogenesis is explored, and the potential of targeting TLS polymerases as a therapeutic approach is discussed.
Histone modifications during DNA replication
TLDR
The aim of this review is to describe the most recent publications related to the role of histone posttranslational modifications during DNA replication.
The NuA4 Complex Promotes Translesion Synthesis (TLS)-Mediated DNA Damage Tolerance
TLDR
The NuA4 remodeler, which is a histone acetyltransferase, is identified to function on the translesion synthesis (TLS) branch ofDDT, indicating that the histone variant H2A.Z functions in vivo on the TLS branch of DDT.

TLDR
The discussion will focus on baker’s yeast, as most of the principles were uncovered in this model organism, but parallels in the mammalian system will be pointed out where appropriate.
Lesions in DNA: hurdles for polymerases.
Lysine 63-Polyubiquitination Guards against Translesion Synthesis–Induced Mutations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that formation of K63-polyUb chains protects human cells against translesion synthesis–induced mutations by promoting recovery of blocked replication forks through an alternative error-free mechanism.
Identification of a protein essential for a major pathway used by human cells to avoid UV- induced DNA damage
TLDR
HMMS2 is essential for human cells to carry out damage avoidance by using either type of homolog, and that damage avoidance and translesion synthesis are alternative pathways for tolerating fork-blocking photoproducts.
Contributions of ubiquitin- and PCNA-binding domains to the activity of Polymerase η in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
It is reported here that a ubiquitin-binding domain provides enhanced affinity for the ubiquitylated form of PCNA and is essential for in vivo function of the polymerase, but only in conjunction with a basal affinity forThe unmodified clamp, mediated by a conserved PCNA interaction motif.
A Role for PCNA Ubiquitination in Immunoglobulin Hypermutation
TLDR
This is the first evidence, to the authors' knowledge, that vertebrates exploit the PCNA-ubiquitin pathway for immunoglobulin hypermutation, most likely through the recruitment of error-prone DNA polymerases.
SUMO-modified PCNA recruits Srs2 to prevent recombination during S phase
TLDR
It is shown by genetic analysis that SUMO-modified PCNA functionally cooperates with Srs2, a helicase that blocks recombinational repair by disrupting Rad51 nucleoprotein filaments, which suggests a model in whichsumO- modified PCNA recruits SRS2 in S phase in order to prevent unwanted recombination events of replicating chromosomes.
Ubiquitylation of yeast proliferating cell nuclear antigen and its implications for translesion DNA synthesis.
TLDR
This work reconstituted this PCNA modification in vitro from purified yeast proteins and suggests a role for PCNA monoubiquitylation in disrupting the PCNA binding of a protein(s) that otherwise is inhibitory to the binding of PCNA by TLS Pols.
