Abstract


Functional telomeres in yeast lacking telomerase can be restored by rare Rad51- or Rad59-dependent recombination events that lead to type I and type II survivors, respectively. We previously proposed that polySUMOylation of proteins and the SUMO-targeted ubiquitin ligase Slx5-Slx8 are key factors in type II recombination. Here, we show that SUMOylation of Rad52 favors the formation of type I survivors. Conversely, preventing Rad52 SUMOylation partially bypasses the requirement of Slx5-Slx8 for type II recombination. We further report that SUMO-dependent proteasomal degradation favors type II recombination. Finally, inactivation of Rad59, but not Rad51, impairs the relocation of eroded telomeres to the Nuclear Pore complexes (NPCs). We propose that Rad59 cooperates with non-SUMOylated Rad52 to promote type II recombination at NPCs, resulting in the emergence of more robust survivors akin to ALT cancer cells. Finally, neither Rad59 nor Rad51 is required by itself for the survival of established type II survivors.
