    <t>DNA</t> repair pathways implicated in 5-FU-mediated cell killing. The model is supported by the following observations: (i) a massive amount of uracil is incorporated into DNA, but the ung1 yeast are much less sensitive to 5-FU than the wild-type strain indicating that uracilated DNA is not the mediator of 5-FU toxicity; (ii) the apn1apn2ntg1ntg2 strain that is entirely defective in processing abasic sites by a BER mechanism is more sensitive to 5-FU, indicating that intact abasic sites (or repair products derived from abasic sites) have inherent toxicity; and <t>(iii)</t> the rad27 and apn1rad27 yeast strains show protection against 5-FU toxicity, suggesting the presence of a toxic repair intermediate downstream of the Rad27 flap endonuclease reaction. Several backup pathways for repair of abasic sites and 5′dRp groups are indicated. The lower path involving Apn2 and other BER enzymes is important in the absence of Apn1 and accounts for the efficient removal of abasic sites in the apn1 strain. NER and HR pathways are likely to be important with the apn1apn2ntg1ntg2 and rad27 knockout strains. Consistent with this, yeast deficient in both BER and NER are not viable.

    Exonuclease activity and hybridization length affects assay sensitivity. (A) VEGF assays were designed with different lengths of the hybridization site and compared with respect to sensitivity. A 9-nt hybridization site was found to give the best signal-to-noise levels and was selected for further studies. ( B ) Different DNA polymerases were tested with regards to their ability to generate good sensitivity in an IL-8-specific assay. T4 DNA polymerase I, DNA polymerase I and Klenow fragment exo + all possess a 3′→5′ exonuclease activity and performed well in the IL-8 detection. Klenow fragment exo − , on the other hand, generated a background signal that was almost at the level of the antigen-induced signal. When exogenous Exonuclease I was added to the reaction, the signal-to-noise level was restored.

    Acceleration of daughter strand unwinding and degradation by GATC sites flanking the mismatch. ( A ) Agarose gel analysis of nicking and unwinding of 0.5 nM circular DNA containing a single G/T mismatch at different positions and one or two GATC sites by 10 nM MutS, 10 nM MutL, 5 nM MutH, 5 nM UvrD, 200 nM Ssb and 0.1 units of ExoI. Early time points (2 and 4 min) showed the conversion of the closed circular DNA (lower band) to open-circular DNA (upper band) due to nicking by MutH. Later time points showed unwinding of nicked daughter strand by UvrD and degradation by ExoI starting from the 3′ end as indicated in the schematic drawings above the gel panels.

Kinetic parameters obtained from the fit are tabulated in Supplementary Table S4. ( C ) Unwinding and excision of GT#1b pre-nicked with MutH alone (left panel), with MutH and Cas9 at site CrB such that nicks were on the same side of the mismatch (middle panel), and with MutH and Cas9 at site CrA such that the nicks flank the mismatch (right panel).

Several backup pathways for repair of abasic sites and 5′dRp groups are indicated. The lower path involving Apn2 and other BER enzymes is important in the absence of Apn1 and accounts for the efficient removal of abasic sites in the apn1 strain.

    The extended G-overhang is not due to the collapse of replication fork. ( A ) No 5′ C-rich overhang was detected during the cell cycle. Genomic DNA isolated from synchronized HeLa cells were hybridized to an 18-mer G-rich probe for detecting C-rich overhangs and hybridized to an 18-mer C-rich probe for detecting G-overhangs under native conditions. To determine the hybridization signals contributed by G- or C-rich overhangs, DNA was digested with 3′ → 5′ exonuclease ExoI, which specifically removes 3′ G-overhangs, or the 5′ → 3′ exonuclease RecJ f ) before hybridization. The same gels were then denatured to determine the total telomere signal. Asyn, asynchronized HeLa cells. ( B ) Quantitation of relative amount of G-overhangs from ( A ).

    Proliferation-inducing capacity of pPCR102-2 and derivatives in HUVECs. HUVECs were transiently transfected with either pPCR102-2 ( A ), pND-A8 ( B ), pND-A2 ( C ) or pPI1-His ( D ) in order to assess their proliferation-inducing potential. Forty-eight hours post transfection, the cell populations were transduced with a GFP-encoding oncoretroviral vector, which exclusively targets proliferating cells. Forty-eight hours post-transduction, GFP-mediated fluorescence was quantified by FACS. Fluorescence values were calculated by multiplying the number of GFP-expressing cells by the average intensity of GFP expression. The relative fluorescence units were obtained by comparison with GFP-mediated fluorescence control populations (cntrl) transfected with isogenic pcDNA3.1/V5-His-TOPO. Corresponding FACS histograms are also shown. All values are representative of at least three independent experiments. FS, forward scatter; FL, fluoresence.

( C ) Partial scan of the footprint in B of both free AQ-157TG (bottom) and AQ-157TG rNCPs (top). The 10 bp periodic cutting in the rNCPs is apparent.
