Abstract


Hexavalent chromium is known to be a potent carcinogen that leads to many different DNA lesions, including DNA-protein crosslinks, and single- and double-strand breaks. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, DNA double-strand breaks are mainly repaired by either homologous recombination (HR) or non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) repair pathways. Here, we show that mutants deficient in NHEJ (yku70Delta, rad50Delta, dnl4Delta, mre11Delta, xrs2Delta) of S. cerevisiae are more sensitive to Cr(VI) toxic effects than wild-type cells. Also, a deletion mutant of SAE2 showed a similar sensitivity to Cr(VI), even though it has no apparent direct role in NHEJ. We also found that double mutants in HR and NHEJ (yku70Delta/rad52Delta, rad50Delta/rad52Delta, dnl4Delta/rad52Delta, mre11Delta/rad52Delta, xrs2Delta/rad52Delta) are synergistically more sensitive to Cr(VI) exposure than any of the single mutants, indicating that both repair pathways are involved in the repair of Cr(VI)-induced lesions. Finally, when the NHEJ mutants were exposed to Cr(VI) under anaerobic growth conditions, Cr(VI) toxicity was suppressed.
