Abstract

An intra-S phase checkpoint slows the rate of DNA replication in response to DNA damage and replication fork blocks in eukaryotic cells. In the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, such down-regulation is achieved through the Rad53 kinase-dependent block of origins of replication. We have identified the Rad53 phosphorylation sites on Dbf4, the activator subunit of the essential S phase Dbf4-dependent kinase, and generated a non-phosphorylatable Dbf4 mutant (dbf4(7A)). We show here that dbf4(7A) is a bona fide intra-S phase checkpoint bypass allele that contributes to abrogating the Rad53 block of origin firing in response to genotoxic stress.
