Target Background

Interacts with EME1 and EME2 to form a DNA structure-specific endonuclease with substrate preference for branched DNA structures with a 5'-end at the branch nick. Typical substrates include 3'-flap structures, replication forks and nicked Holliday junctions. May be required in mitosis for the processing of stalled or collapsed replication forks.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Replication fork progression in BRCA2-deficient cells requires MUS81. MUS81 nucleolytic activity is required to activate compensatory DNA synthesis during mitosis and to resolve mitotic interlinks, thus facilitating chromosome segregation. PMID: 28714477
  2. Using RNAi or FA-P cells complemented with SLX4 mutants that abrogate interaction with MUS81 or SLX1, we show that SLX4 cooperates with MUS81 to introduce DSBs after replication stress but also counteracts pathological targeting of demised forks by GEN1. PMID: 28290553
  3. The results showed that MUS81 modulates MCM2 levels as well as homologous recombination (HR) activity. Moreover, downregulation of MUS81 increased the sensitivity of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC)cells to olaparib by inducing S phase arrest and promoting apoptosis through activation of MCM2. MUS81 may be a potential novel therapeutic target for EOC. PMID: 29393493
  4. Mus81 knockdown improves the chemosensitivity of colon cancer cells by inducing S phase arrest and promoting apoptosis through activating CHK1 pathway PMID: 28291626
  5. Low EZH2 or MUS81 expression levels predict chemoresistance. PMID: 29035360
  6. RECQ5 removes RAD51 filaments stabilizing stalled replication forks at common fragile sites and hence facilitates CFS cleavage by MUS81-EME1. PMID: 28575661
  7. The mitotic DNA synthesis is RAD52 dependent, and RAD52 is required for the timely recruitment of MUS81 and POLD3 to common fragile sites in early mitosis. PMID: 27984745
  8. Data suggest that dimeric GEN1 binds with high affinity/selectivity to Holliday junctions, introducing two symmetrical hydrolytic cleavages of phosphodiester backbone; at present, less is known about SLX1-SLX4-MUS81-EME1 resolving enzyme complex. (GEN1 = Holliday junction 5' flap endonuclease; SLX = structure-specific endonuclease subunit; MUS81 = MUS81 endonuclease; EME1 = essential meiotic endonuclease 1) [REVIEW] PMID: 27990631
  9. down-regulation of MUS81 expression in ovarian cancer cells inhibited cell proliferation and colony formation ability, and influenced cell cycle progression PMID: 27255997

  11. Mus81 sumoylation is important for normal mitotic chromosome congression. PMID: 28318385
  12. Data suggest that the ATM/Chk2 may promote the repair of DNA damage caused by cisplatin by sustaining methyl methanesulfonate and ultraviolet-sensitive gene clone 81, and the double-strand breaks generated by methyl methanesulfonate and ultraviolet-sensitive gene clone 81 may activate the ATM/Chk2 pathway. PMID: 28347251
  13. Avoiding damage formation through invalidation of Mus81-Eme2 and Mre11, or preventing damage signaling by turning off the ATM pathway, suppresses the replication phenotypes of Chk1-deficient cells. PMID: 26804904
  14. Mus81 knockdown improves the chemosensitivity of HCC cells by inducing S-phase arrest and promoting apoptosis through CHK1 pathway, suggesting Mus81 as a novel therapeutic target for HCC. PMID: 26714930
  15. Mus81 regulates the rate of DNA replication during normal growth by promoting replication fork progression while reducing the frequency of replication initiation events. PMID: 25879486
  16. Identification and characterization of MUS81 point mutations that abolish interaction with the SLX4 scaffold protein.MUS81 function in DNA interstrand crosslinks repair requires interaction with SLX4. PMID: 25224045
  17. The data highlight the importance of Mus81 and Blm in DNA double-strand repair pathways, fertility, development and cancer. PMID: 24858046
  18. Authors confirmed that HIV-1 Vpr induces degradation of Mus81 although, surprisingly, degradation is independent and genetically separable from Vprs ability to induce G2 arrest. PMID: 25618414
  19. Results define distinct and temporal roles for MUS81-EME1 and MUS81-EME2 in the maintenance of genome stability. PMID: 24813886
  20. Our findings reveal a novel RAD52/MUS81-dependent mechanism that promotes cell viability and genome integrity in checkpoint-deficient cells, and disclose the involvement of MUS81 to multiple processes after replication stress PMID: 24204313
  21. While Mus81-Eme1 shares several common features with members of the 5' flap nuclease family, the combined structural, biochemical, and biophysical analyses explain why Mus81-Eme1 preferentially cleaves 3' flap DNA substrates with 5' nicked ends. PMID: 24733841
  22. In vivo HJ resolution depends on both SLX4-associated MUS81-EME1 and SLX1, suggesting that they are acting in concert in the context of SLX4. PMID: 24080495
  23. The presence of a 5' phosphate terminus at nicks and gaps rendered DNA significantly less susceptible to the cleavage by MUS81-EME2 than its absence. PMID: 24692662
  24. This study identified a winged helix domain within the N-terminal region of human MUS81 that binds DNA, increases the activity of MUS81-EME1/EME2 complexes and influences the incision position of MUS81-EME2 but not MUS81-EME1 complexes on synthetic forks, 3' flaps and nicked Holliday junctions. PMID: 23982516
