Most types of DNA damage block the passage of the replication machinery. In order to bypass these blocks, cells employ special translesion synthesis (TLS) DNA polymerases, which have lower stringency than replicative polymerases. DNA polymerase η is the major polymerase responsible for bypassing UV lesions in DNA and its absence results in the variant form of the genetic disorder, xeroderma pigmentosum. Other TLS polymerases have specificities for different types of damage, but their precise… Expand
Eukaryotic Translesion Polymerases and Their Roles and Regulation in DNA Damage Tolerance
TLDR
The current state of knowledge about the eukaryotic DNA damage tolerance pathway translesion synthesis (TLS), a process in which specialized DNA polymerases replicate across from DNA lesions, is summarized. Expand
Translesion synthesis: Y-family polymerases and the polymerase switch.
TLDR
In eukaryotes mono-ubiquitination of PCNA plays a crucial role in the switch from replicative to TLS polymerases at stalled forks, and all the Y-family polymerases have ubiquitin binding sites that increase their binding affinity for ubiquitinated PCNA at the sites of stalled forks. Expand
Localization of Y-family polymerases and the DNA polymerase switch in mammalian cells.
TLDR
This chapter describes methods for visualizing the polymerases in replication factories, for analyzing the ubiquitination status of PCNA, and for measuring its interaction with poleta in chromatin extracts. Expand
Distinct requirements for budding yeast Rev1 and Polη in translesion DNA synthesis across different types of DNA damage
TLDR
Assessment of relative contributions of two Y-family TLS polymerases, Rev1 and Polη, in bypassing lesions induced by various types of DNA-damaging agents indicate that specialized Y- family DNA polymerases have evolved to deal with different types of environmental genotoxic stresses. Expand
Mechanism of translesion transcription by RNA polymerase II and its role in cellular resistance to DNA damage.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that Pol II has an intrinsic capacity for translesion synthesis (TLS) that enables bypass of the CPD with or without repair, which becomes essential for cell survival upon accumulation of the unrepaired CPD lesions in genomic DNA. Expand
Replication-dependent and -independent Responses of RAD18 to DNA Damage in Human Cells*
TLDR
It is found that human RAD18 accumulates very rapidly and remains for a long period of time at sites of different types of DNA damage, including UVC light-induced lesions, and x-ray microbeam- and laser-induced single-strand breaks, in a cell cycle-independent manner. Expand
PCNA trimer instability inhibits translesion synthesis by DNA polymerase η and by DNA polymerase δ.
TLDR
Findings support a model in which reduced trimer stability causes these mutant PCNA proteins to occasionally undergo conformational changes that compromise their ability to stimulate TLS by both replicative and translesion polymerases. Expand
Roles of DNA polymerases in replication, repair, and recombination in eukaryotes.
TLDR
The structure, the mechanism, and the evolutionary relationships of DNA polymerases and their possible functions in the replication of intact and damaged chromosomes, DNA damage repair, and recombination are discussed. Expand
Studies of Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen Mutant Proteins Defective in Translesion Synthesis and Mismatch Repair
Translesion synthesis (TLS), the process by which DNA polymerases replicate through DNA lesions, is the source of most DNA damage-induced mutations. Sometimes TLS is carried out by classical DNAExpand
Eukaryotic Translesion DNA Synthesis on the Leading and Lagging Strands: Unique Detours around the Same Obstacle.
TLDR
This review revisits studies on TLS in eukaryotes to dissect the step-by-step intricacies of this complex process, provide the current understanding of TLS on leading and lagging strand templates, and propose testable hypotheses to gain further insights. Expand

Interaction of human DNA polymerase eta with monoubiquitinated PCNA: a possible mechanism for the polymerase switch in response to DNA damage.
TLDR
This work shows that, in human cells, PCNA becomes monoubiquitinated following UV irradiation of the cells and that this is dependent on the hRad18 protein, and identifies two motifs in poleta that are involved in this interaction. Expand
Xeroderma pigmentosum variant and error-prone DNA polymerases.
TLDR
The UV hypermutability of XP-V cells suggests that, in the absence of a functional poleta, UV-induced lesions are bypassed by inaccurate DNA polymerase(s) which remain to be identified. Expand
Eukaryotic polymerases ι and ζ act sequentially to bypass DNA lesions
TLDR
In a new model for mutagenic bypass of DNA lesions in eukaryotes, the two DNA polymerases act sequentially: Polι incorporates deoxynucleotides opposite DNA lesions, and Polζ functions as a mispair extender. Expand

TLDR
It is reported here that an interaction between human DNA polymerase ι (polι) and the proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) stimulates the processivity of polι in a template-dependent manner in vitro. Expand

Thymine-Thymine Dimer Bypass by Yeast DNA Polymerase ζ
TLDR
The REV3 and REV7 genes of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are required for DNA damage-induced mutagenesis and the Rev3 and Rev7 proteins were shown to form a complex with DNA polymerase activity, which is the sixth eukaryoticDNA polymerase to be described, and is therefore called DNA polymerases ζ.

Error-prone bypass of certain DNA lesions by the human DNA polymerase kappa.
TLDR
It is reported that the DINB1 gene encodes a DNA polymerase (designated polkappa), which incorporates mismatched bases on a nondamaged template with a high frequency, which implicate an important role in the mutagenic bypass of certain types of DNA lesions. Expand
Deoxycytidyl transferase activity of yeast REV1 protein
TLDR
It is shown here that Revl protein has a deoxycytidyl transferase activity which transfers a dCMP residue from dCTP to the 3′ end of a DNA primer in a template-dependent reaction. Expand
Mouse Rev1 protein interacts with multiple DNA polymerases involved in translesion DNA synthesis
TLDR
The observations suggest that Rev1 plays a role in mediating protein–protein interactions among DNA polymerases required for TLS, and the precise function(s) of these interactions during TLS remains to be determined. Expand
Mechanisms of accurate translesion synthesis by human DNA polymerase η
TLDR
It is shown that human pol η can catalyze translesion synthesis past an abasic (AP) site analog, N‐2‐acetylaminofluorene (AAF)‐modified guanine, and a cisplatin‐induced intrastrand cross‐link between two guanines. Expand
