Background: Ultraviolet UV light causes genetic instability, Escherichiaa chromosome fragmentation. Results: UV light induces chromosomal fragmentation, which is independent of excision of UV lesions but requires replication forks, homologous strand exchange, and Holliday junction resolution. Conclusion: Fragmentation is a result of replication fork reversal and breakage. Significance: Breakage is the first step in rescuing stalled replication forks.
Ultraviolet UV irradiation is not known to induce chromosomal fragmentation in sublethal doses, and yet UV irradiation causes genetic instability and cancer, suggesting that chromosomes are fragmented. Here we show that UV irradiation induces fragmentation in sublethal doses, but the broken chromosomes are repaired or degraded by RecBCD; therefore, to observe full fragmentation, RecBCD enzyme needs to be inactivated. Using quantitative pulsed field gel electrophoresis and sensitive DNA synthesis measurements, we investigated the mechanisms of UV radiation-induced chromosomal fragmentation in recBC mutants, comparing five existing models of DNA damage-induced fragmentation. At low UV irradiation doses, fragmentation does not need excision repair or daughter strand gap repair.
Thus, chromosomes fragment when replication forks stall at UV lesions and regress, generating Holliday junctions. Remarkably, cells specifically utilize fork breakage to rescue stalled replication and avoid lethality. S1 and S2 and Table S1.
