Abstract

Escherichia coli endonuclease III (Endo III) and its eukaryotic homologues are major repair enzymes for pyrimidine lesions formed by reactive oxygen species and ionizing radiation. In the present study, the activities of Endo III and its mouse homologue (mNTH1) have been compared using defined oligonucleotide substrates containing a urea residue (UR), two cis-thymine glycol (TG) diastereoisomers, 5,6-dihydrothymine (DHT), and 5-hydroxyuracil (HOU). The substrates were incubated with Endo III and mNTH1, and their activities were compared based on the product analysis by gel electrophoresis. Endo III recognized all base lesions tested, but the activity for DHT was extremely lower than other substrates. In contrast, albeit some preference of UR, mNTH1 showed essentially comparable activities for all substrates including DHT. Comparison of the enzymatic parameters for cis-TG and DHT revealed that large decreases in the affinity (K(m), 27-fold) and k(cat) (11-fold) relative to cis-TG made DHT an very poor substrate for Endo III. mNTH1 had comparable affinities and k(cat) for both cis-TG and DHT, though turnover (k(cat)) of mNTH1 was notably slower than Endo III. In view of the reaction mechanism, the paired base effect on the damage recognition by the two enzymes was also examined. The activities of Endo III for UR and HOU were paired base-independent, but those for cis-TG and DHT were significantly enhanced when paired with G. With mNTH1, the paired base effect was evident only for DHT. The variations of the repair activity with paired bases and enzymes are discussed in relation to the base flipping mechanism suggested for base excision repair enzymes.
