Abstract


In eukaryotic cells, transcription coupled nucleotide excision repair (TC-NER) is believed to be initiated by RNA polymerase II (Pol II) stalled at a lesion in the transcribed strand of a gene. Rad26, the yeast homolog of the human CSB protein, plays an important role in TC-NER. Spt4, a transcription elongation factor that forms a complex with Spt5, has been shown to suppress TC-NER in rad26 deleted cells. Here we present evidence that Spt4 indirectly suppresses Rad26-independent TC-NER by protecting Spt5 from degradation and by stabilizing the interaction of Spt5 with Pol II. We further found that the C-terminal repeat (CTR) domain of Spt5, which is dispensable for cell viability and is not involved in interactions with Spt4 and Pol II, plays an important role in the suppression. The Spt5 CTR is phosphorylated by the Bur kinase. Inactivation of the Bur kinase partially alleviates TC-NER in rad26 deleted cells. We propose that the Spt5 CTR suppresses Rad26-independent TC-NER by serving as a platform for assembly of a multiple protein suppressor complex that is associated with Pol II. Phosphorylation of the Spt5 CTR by the Bur kinase may facilitate the assembly of the suppressor complex.
