Proliferating cell nuclear antigen ( PCNA ) is a DNA clamp that acts as a processivity factor for DNA polymerase δ in eukaryotic cells and is essential for replication. PCNA is a homotrimer and achieves its processivity by encircling the DNA, where it acts as a scaffold to recruit proteins involved in DNA replication, DNA repair, . The structures of several proteins and peptides bound to PCNA show a common binding mode, but it is still unknown how the many different partners compete for binding and exert their enzymatic and regulatory . Different types of interaction between PCNA and PIP boxes contribute to distinct cellular functions of Y-family DNA polymerases.

Author information: (1)National Laboratory of Biomacromolecules, Institute of Biophysics, Chinese . Translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) by the Y-family DNA polymerases Polη, Polι and Polκ, mediated via interaction with proliferating cell nuclear antigen ( PCNA ), is a crucial pathway that protects human cells against DNA damage. We report that Polη has three PCNA -interacting protein ( PIP ) boxes. Here, we report the crystal structure of human PCNA. PCNA supports translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) by .
We have used NMR to characterize the interactions of PCNA with several other proteins and fragments in solution. Substrates of the Eubiquitin ligase CRL4Cdt including Cdtand p2 contain a PCNA -binding motif called a PIP box. Upon binding of the PIP box to PCNA on chromatin, CRL4Cdtis recruited and the substrate is ubiquitylated. Importantly, a PIP box cannot be sufficient for destruction, as most. PCNA -partner proteins interactions is complex.
A hydrophobic groove at the front side of PCNA serves as a primary docking site for the consensus PIP box motifs present in many PCNA -binding partners. Sequences that immediately flank the PIP box motif or . Tables and summarise PCNA -interacting proteins and indicate their functions in the cell. These proteins can be divided into two groups: those that have a known enzymatic activity (Table 1) and those that are involved . Biological function pPAF regulates DNA replication and repair by binding to the proliferating cell nuclear antigen ( PCNA ) sliding clamp.
Here we identified PARG acetylation site K4that is essential for its interaction with PCNA , its localization within replication foci and its recruitment to DNA damage sites. PIP – box , and is also present in several. The previously identified putative . Canonical PIP box residues are shown in violet, and PIP degron-specific residues are shown in blue. The TD motif promotes high-affinity binding to PCNA , whereas the basic residue four amino acids downstream from the PIP box is required for docking of CRLCdtonto the PCNA – PIP degron complex.
Pol e and Pol d by PCNA occurs by two distinct mechanisms.
Site directed mutagenesis of the conserved residues as well as deletion of . Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen ( PCNA ) is an important protein complex that assists in DNA synthesis and repair. However, the three Polymerases . Replicative DNA polymerases possess a canonical C-terminal proliferating cell nuclear antigen ( PCNA )-binding motif termed the PCNA -interacting protein ( PIP ) box. We investigated the role of the PIP.
