Cellular levels of poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR) are regulated by PAR polymerases (PARPs) and the degrading enzyme PAR glycohydrolase (PARG), controlling the cell fate decision between life and death in response to DNA damage. Replication stress is a source of DNA damage, leading to transient stalling of replication forks or to their collapse followed by the generation of double-strand breaks (DSB). The involvement of PARP-1 in replicative stress response has been described, whereas the consequences of a deregulated PAR catabolism are not yet well established. Here, we show that PARG-deprived cells showed an enhanced sensitivity to the replication inhibitor hydroxyurea. PARG is dispensable to recover from transient replicative stress but is necessary to avoid massive PAR production upon prolonged replicative stress, conditions leading to fork collapse and DSB. Extensive PAR accumulation impairs replication protein A association with collapsed forks resulting in compromised DSB repair via homologous recombination. Our results highlight the critical role of PARG in tightly controlling PAR levels produced upon genotoxic stress to prevent the detrimental effects of PAR over-accumulation.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Oxford University Press||Journal:||Nucleic Acids Research||Volume:||42||Issue:||12||Start page:||7776||End page:||7792||Copyright (published version):||2014 the Authors||Keywords:||PARG; Transient replicative stress; poly(ADP-ribose); Prolonged replicative stress; Poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation; PARPs; Cell fate decisions; PAR||DOI:||10.1093/nar/gku505||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
