Using combined approaches of proteomics and in vitro and in vivo protein–protein interaction, we identified the p58 subunit of DNA Pol α-primase as a new binding partner of XRCC1, a key protein of the single strand break repair (SSBR) complex. In vitro experiments reveal that the binding of poly(ADP-ribose) to p58 inhibits primase activity by competition with its DNA binding property. Overexpression of the XRCC1-BRCT1 domain in HeLa cells induces poly(ADP-ribose) synthesis, PARP-1 and XRCC1-BRCT1 poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation and a strong S phase delay in the presence of DNA damage. Addition of recombinant XRCC1-BRCT1 to Xenopus egg extracts slows down DNA synthesis and inhibits the binding of PCNA, but not MCM2 to alkylated chromatin, thus indicating interference with the assembly of functional replication forks. Altogether these results suggest a critical role for XRCC1 in connecting the SSBR machinery with the replication fork to halt DNA synthesis in response to DNA damage.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Oxford University Press||Copyright (published version):||2009 Oxford University Press||Keywords:||XRCC1;single strand break repair (SSBR) complex;DNA repair;DNA replication||DOI:||10.1093/nar/gkp144||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
