The abundance of Fob1 modulates the efficiency of rRFBs to stall replication forks.

ABSTRACT: In eukaryotes, ribosomal genes (rDNA) are organized in tandem repeats localized in one or a few clusters. Each repeat encompasses a transcription unit and a non-transcribed spacer. Replication forks moving in the direction opposite to transcription are blocked at specific sites called replication fork barriers (rRFBs) in the non-transcribed spacer close to the 3' end of the transcription unit. Here, we investigated and quantified the efficiency of rRFBs in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to this end transfected budding yeast cells that express dissimilar quantities of Fob1 with circular minichromosomes containing different copies of the minimal 20-bp DNA segment that bind Fob1. To identify fork stalling we used high-resolution 2D agarose gel electrophoresis. The results obtained indicated that neighbor DNA sequences and the relative abundance of Fob1 modulate the efficiency of rRFBs to stall replication forks.
