Abstract

Replication protein A (RPA) is a heterotrimeric protein composed of 70- , 34-, and 14-kDa subunits that has been shown to be required for DNA replication, repair, and homologous recombination. We have previously shown preferential binding of recombinant human RPA (rhRPA) to duplex cisplatin- damaged DNA compared with the control undamaged DNA (Patrick, S. M., and Turchi, J. J. (1998) Biochemistry 37, 8808-8815). Here we assess the binding of rhRPA to DNA containing site-specific cisplatin-DNA adducts, rhRPA is shown to bind 1.5-2-fold better to a duplex 30-base pair substrate containing a single 1,3d(GpXpG) compared with a 1,2d(GpG) cisplatin-DNA intrastrand adduct, consistent with the difference in thermal stability of DNA containing each adduct. Consistent with these data, a 21-base pair DNA substrate containing a centrally located single interstrand cisplatin cross-link resulted in less binding than to the undamaged control DNA. A series of experiments measuring rhRPA binding and concurrent DNA denaturation revealed that rhRPA binds duplex cisplatin-damaged DNA via the generation of single- stranded DNA. Single-strand DNA binding experiments show that rhRPA binds 3- 4-fold better to an undamaged 24-base DNA compared with the same substrate containing a single 1,2d(GpG) cisplatin-DNA adduct. These data are consistent with a low affinity interaction of rhRPA with duplex-damaged DNA followed by the generation of single-stranded DNA and then high affinity binding to the undamaged DNA strand.
