Abstract


The Saccharomyces cerevisiae Tid1 protein is important for the recombinational repair of double-stranded DNA breaks during meiosis. Tid1 is a member of Swi2/Snf2 family of chromatin remodeling proteins and shares homology with Rad54. Members of this family hydrolyze ATP and promote (1) chromatin remodeling, (2) DNA topology alterations, and (3) displacement of proteins from DNA. All of these activities are presumed to require translocation of the protein on DNA. Here, we use single-molecule visualization to provide direct evidence for the ability of Tid1 to translocate on DNA. Tid1 translocation is ATP-dependent and the velocities are broadly distributed with average being 84 (+/- 39) base pairs/s. Translocation is processive, with the average molecule traveling ~10,000 base pairs before pausing or dissociating. Many molecules display simple monotonic unidirectional translocation, but the majority display complex translocation behavior comprising intermittent pauses, direction reversals, and velocity changes. Finally, we demonstrate that translocation by Tid1 on DNA can result in disruption of three-stranded DNA structures. The ability of Tid1 translocation to clear DNA of proteins and to migrate recombination intermediates may be of critical importance for DNA repair and chromosome dynamics.
