Title O-GlcNAc modification affects the ATM-mediated DNA damage response.
Journal Biochim Biophys Acta
Abstract BACKGROUND:O-Linked β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) is a reversible, post-translational, and regulatory modification of nuclear, mitochondrial, and cytoplasmic proteins that is responsive to cellular stress. The role of O-GlcNAcylation in the ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM)-mediated DNA damage response is unknown. It is unclear whether ATM, which is an early acting and central component of the signal transduction system activated by DNA double strand breaks, is an O-GlcNAc-modified protein.
METHODS:The effect of O-GlcNAc modification on ATM activation was examined using two inhibitors, PUGNAc and DON that increase and decrease, respectively, levels of protein O-GlcNAcylation. To assess O-GlcNAcylation of ATM, immunoprecipitation and immunoblot analyses using anti-ATM or anti-O-GlcNAc antibody were performed in HeLa cells and primary cultured neurons. Interaction of ATM with O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT), the enzyme that adds O-GlcNAc to target proteins, was examined by immunoprecipitation and immunoblot analyses using anti-ATM.
RESULTS:Enhancement of protein O-GlcNAcylation increased levels of X-irradiation-induced ATM activation. However, decreases in protein O-GlcNAcylation did not affect levels of ATM activation, but these decreases did delay ATM activation and ATM recovery processes based on assessment of de-phosphorylation of phospho-ATM. Thus, activation and recovery of ATM were affected by O-GlcNAcylation. ATM was subjected to O-GlcNAcylation, and ATM interacted with OGT. The steady-state O-GlcNAc level of ATM was not significantly responsive to X-irradiation or oxidative stress.
GENERAL SIGNIFICANCE:ATM is an O-GlcNAc modified protein, and dynamic O-GlcNAc modification affects the ATM-mediated DNA damage response.
