PARP1 regulates DNA damage-induced nucleolar-nucleoplasmic shuttling of WRN and XRCC1 in a toxicant and protein-specific manner.

ABSTRACT: The prime function of nucleoli is ribogenesis, however, several other, non-canonical functions have recently been identified, including a role in genotoxic stress response. Upon DNA damage, numerous proteins shuttle dynamically between the nucleolus and the nucleoplasm, yet the underlying molecular mechanisms are incompletely understood. Here, we demonstrate that PARP1 and PARylation contribute to genotoxic stress-induced nucleolar-nucleoplasmic shuttling of key genome maintenance factors in HeLa cells. Our work revealed that the RECQ helicase, WRN, translocates from nucleoli to the nucleoplasm upon treatment with the oxidizing agent H2O2, the alkylating agent 2-chloroethyl ethyl sulfide (CEES), and the topoisomerase inhibitor camptothecin (CPT). We show that after treatment with H2O2 and CEES, but not CPT, WRN translocation was dependent on PARP1 protein, yet independent of its enzymatic activity. In contrast, nucleolar-nucleoplasmic translocation of the base excision repair protein, XRCC1, was dependent on both PARP1 protein and its enzymatic activity. Furthermore, gossypol, which inhibits PARP1 activity by disruption of PARP1-protein interactions, abolishes nucleolar-nucleoplasmic shuttling of WRN, XRCC1 and PARP1, indicating the involvement of further upstream factors. In conclusion, this study highlights a prominent role of PARP1 in the DNA damage-induced nucleolar-nucleoplasmic shuttling of genome maintenance factors in HeLa cells in a toxicant and protein-specific manner.
