Nonhomologous end-joining deficiency of L5178Y-S cells is not associated with mutation in the ABCDE autophosphorylation cluster

Cells with mutated autophosphorylation sites in the ABCDE cluster of DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs) are defective in the repair of ionising radiation-induced DSB, but show in an in vitro test the same DNA-PK activity as the cells possessing wild type enzyme. Nevertheless, the mutated DNA-PK is able to undergo ATP-dependent autophosphorylation and inactivation. This characteristics correspond well with the phenotypic features of the L5178Y-S (LY-S) cell line that is defective in DSB repair, shows a pronounced G1 phase radiosensitivity, but in which the level of DNA-PK activity present in total cell extracts is similar to that of its radioresistant counterpart L5178Y-R (LY-R) cell line. The purpose of this work was to examine the possible alterations in the sequence encoding the cluster of autophosphorylation sites in the DNA-dependent protein kinase in LY-S cells. Despite the presence of phenotypic features indicating the possibility of such alterations, no differences were found between the sequences coding for the autophosphorylation sites in L5178Y-R and L5178Y-S cells. In conclusion, the repair defect in LY-S cells is not related to the structure of the DNA-PK autophosphorylation sites (ABCDE casette).
