|BRCA1-associated protein 1 (BAP1) deubiquitinase antagonizes the ubiquitin-mediated activation of FoxK2 target genes.|

BRCA1-associated protein 1 (BAP1), which is frequently mutated in cancer, functions as a deubiquitinase (DUB) for histone H2A. Although BAP1 interacts with a transcriptional regulator, HCF-1, and transcription factors FoxK1 and FoxK2, how BAP1 controls gene expression remains unclear. This study investigates the importance of BAP1 DUB activity and the interactions with FoxK2 and HCF-1 in the regulation of FoxK2 target genes. We show that FoxK2 recruits BAP1 to the target genes through the forkhead-associated domain, which interacts with Thr(P)-493 on BAP1. BAP1, in turn, recruits HCF-1, thereby forming a ternary complex in which BAP1 bridges FoxK2 and HCF-1. BAP1 represses FoxK2 target genes, and this effect requires BAP1 DUB activity but not interaction with HCF-1. Importantly, BAP1 depletion causes up-regulation of FoxK2 target genes only in the presence of the Ring1B-Bmi1 complex, an E3 ubiquitin ligase for histone H2A, indicating an antagonizing role of BAP1 against Ring1B-Bmi1. Our findings suggest that BAP1 deficiency causes increased expression of target genes in a Ring1B-Bmi1-dependent manner.

Homologous recombination and non-homologous end joining are two major DNA double-strand-break repair pathways. While HR-mediated repair requires a homologous sequence as the guiding template to restore the damage site precisely, NHEJ-mediated repair ligates the DNA lesion directly and increases the risk of losing nucleotides. Therefore, how a cell regulates the balance between HR and NHEJ has become an important issue for maintaining genomic integrity over time. Here we report that SIRT1-dependent KAP1 deacetylation positively regulates NHEJ. We show that up-regulation of KAP1 attenuates HR efficiency while promoting NHEJ repair. Moreover, SIRT1-mediated KAP1 deacetylation further enhances the effect of NHEJ by stabilizing its interaction with 53BP1, which leads to increased 53BP1 focus formation in response to DNA damage. Taken together, our study suggests a SIRT1-KAP1 regulatory mechanism for HR-NHEJ repair pathway choice.
