The Poly(ADP-ribosyl)ating Polymerase (PARP) family of enzymes has gained considerable attention recently due to the success of inhibiting their activities in breast cancers with BRCA 1/2 deficient backgrounds. PARPs serve as key regulators of protein recruitment, stability and activity in specific intracellular pathways including DNA-repair, telomere stability, transcription factor regulation and mitotic integrity. The PARP family member, PARP-5a, otherwise known as tankyrase 1 is unique in that it lacks a DNA-binding domain and interacts with proteins specifically. First found to regulate telomere length by promoting access to telomerase, tankyrase 1 has since become associated with a multitude of critical cellular processes
In our studies investigating the role of DNA-dependent Protein Kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs) and tankyrase 1 at telomeres, we find that tankyrase 1 is required for the suppression of sister chromatid recombination events at the telomere and that the leucine zipper domain of DNA-PKcs is necessary for accurate end-capping function. Interestingly, during our investigation we also identified a link between the stability of the DNA-PKcs protein and tankyrase 1
We find that under conditions in which tankyrase 1 is depleted or catalytically inhibited, DNA-PKcs becomes a substrate for proteasome mediated degradation. The depletion of tankyrase 1 by siRNA-mediated knockdown or PARP inhibition resulted in the failure of DNA-PKcs function in both telomere end-capping and the DNA damage response following exposure to ionizing radiation; i.e., increased sensitivity to ionizing radiation-induced cell killing, mutagenesis, chromosome aberrations and telomere fusions. Further, we find that the loss of DNA-PKcs is not coupled with depletion of Ku70, Ku80 or the PI3-kinase ATM, illustrating that tankyrase 1 acts to regulate DNAPKcs specifically. Taken together, we identify important and novel roles of tankyrase 1 with implications not only for DNA repair and telomere biology, but also for cancer and aging
