Abstract [en]

To provide molecular-level insights into the spontaneous replication error and the mismatch discrimination mechanisms of human DNA polymerase beta (pol beta), we report four crystal structures of pol beta complexed with dG.dTTP and dA.dCTP mismatches in the presence of Mg2+ or Mn2+. The Mg2+-bound ground-state structures show that the dA.dCTP-Mg2+ complex adopts an 'intermediate' protein conformation while the dG.dTTP-Mg2+ complex adopts an open protein conformation. The Mn2+-bound 'pre-chemistry-state' structures show that the dA.dCTP-Mn2+ complex is structurally very similar to the dA.dCTP-Mg2+ complex, whereas the dG.dTTP-Mn2+ complex undergoes a large-scale conformational change to adopt a Watson-Crick-like dG.dTTP base pair and a closed protein conformation. These structural differences, together with our molecular dynamics simulation studies, suggest that pol beta increases replication fidelity via a two-stage mismatch discrimination mechanism, where one is in the ground state and the other in the closed conformation state. In the closed conformation state, pol beta appears to allow only a Watson-Crick-like conformation for purine.pyrimidine base pairs, thereby discriminating the mismatched base pairs based on their ability to form the Watson-Crick-like conformation. Overall, the present studies provide new insights into the spontaneous replication error and the replication fidelity mechanisms of pol beta.
