Structural basis for inhibition of the histone chaperone activity of SET/TAF-Iß by cytochrome c
Resumen: Chromatin is pivotal for regulation of the DNA damage process insofar as it influences access to DNA and serves as a DNA repair docking site. Recent works identify histone chaperones as key re- gulators of damaged chromatin’s transcriptional activity. However, understanding how chaperones are modulated during DNA damage response is still challenging. This study reveals that the histone chap- erone SET/TAF-Iß interacts with cytochrome c following DNA damage. Specifically, cytochrome c is shown to be translocated into cell nuclei upon induction of DNA damage, but not upon stimulation of the death receptor or stress-induced pathways. Cytochrome c was found to competitively hinder binding of SET/TAF-Iß to core histones, thereby locking its histone-binding domains and inhibiting its nucle- osome assembly activity. In addition, we have used NMR spectros- copy, calorimetry, mutagenesis, and molecular docking to provide an insight into the structural features of the formation of the complex between cytochrome c and SET/TAF-Iß. Overall, these findings estab- lish a framework for understanding the molecular basis of cyto- chrome c-mediated blocking of SET/TAF-Iß, which subsequently may facilitate the development of new drugs to silence the oncogenic effect of SET/TAF-Iß’s histone chaperone activity.
