Possible role of histone acetylation and histone h1 replacement for the initiation of replication in regenerating rat liver



Possible role of histone acetylation and histone h1 replacement for the initiation of replication in regenerating rat liver



Biochemical Journal 280(3): 777-782



The role of histone acetylation and DNA synthesis has been investigated extensively in the regenerating rat liver system in the presence and absence of the cyclophosphamide derivative mafosfamide. We demonstrate a mafosfamide-induced inhibition of maximum histone acetyltransferase activity followed by a second elevation of enzyme activity and an accompanying total suppression of DNA synthesis for 7-8 h. The maximum of histone acetyltransferase activity, in parallel with an elevated acetylation in vivo, the consecutive replacement of histone H1.degree. and initiation of replication occur sequentially in the presence and absence of mafosfamide, but with a temporary delay of 7-8 h. Our data indicate that modifications of histone acetyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.48) activity do not significantly influence the acetylation patterns of histones H3 and H4. The mafosfamide-induced change of histone acetyltransferase activity and acetylation in vivo, the shift of histone H1.degree. exchange and the consecutive transition of initiation of replication suggest that these three events might be functionally related.
