Resumo: Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (Parp1) has been implicated in DNA base excision repair, single- and double-strand break repair pathways, as well as in cell death by apoptosis or necrosis. We used Parp1(-/-) lacZ plasmid-based transgenic mice to investigate whether Parp1 deficiency influences the in vivo mutagenic and clastogenic response to the alkylating agent N-ethyl-N-Nitrosourea (ENU) in somatic and germ-cell tissues. The comparison of the lacZ mutant frequencies (MFs) between Parp1(+/+) and Parp1(-/-) mice showed that the ablation of Parp1 does not affect the spontaneous or ENU-induced MFs in liver and testis. In addition, the spectrum of the ENU-induced mutations was not dependent on the Parp1 status, given that similar spectra, consisting mostly of point mutations and a small fraction of deletions/insertions, wereobserved in organs of both Parp1(-/-) and Parp1(+/+) mice. Sequencing of point mutations revealed a consistent significant increase in A:T --> T:A base substitutions, typically induced by ENU. Overall, we observed that neither the frequency nor the spectrum of ENU-induced mutations demonstrated a specificity that could be attributed to the Parp1 impairment in mice organs. The analysis of micronucleus frequency in peripheral blood reticulocytes showed that ENU was clastogenic in both Parp1(-/-) and Parp1(+/+) mice and had a strong cytotoxic effect in Parp1(-/-) mice only. The present data suggest that, at a whole-organism level, Parp1-independent repair mechanisms may be operative in the removal of ENU-induced DNA lesions or that highly damaged cells may be preferentially committed to death when Parp1 is inactivated.
