The in vivo integration of linear retroviral DNA catalyzed by integrase occurs by a concerted mechanism known as full-site or two-ended integration. The purified recombinant enzyme also accurately reproduces concerted integration, but the in vitro efficiency is still far below that expected for integration in vivo. Early reconstitution experiments using purified IN, a linear retrovirus-like DNA donor and a target DNA were successful but yielded low levels of concerted integration 1 , 2.
The efficiency of full-site integration was significantly increased later on by employing non-ionic detergent IN-containing lysates of HIV-1 virions 3 , but the proficiency and reliability of the reaction vary with the various reconstitution systems 4. Although purified HIV-1 IN can perform full-site integration in vitro , retroviral proteins, such as the nucleocapsid protein NCp 5 , or factors, such as HMGA1, belonging to cellular high mobility group proteins have been shown to mediate efficient full-site integration 6.
The lack of these factors in in vitro integration assays may account for the differences observed. Moreover, deficient protein-folding or incorrect oligomerization of purified IN may also prevent native assembly of complexes with viral DNA ends, which is essential for full-site integration 7 , 8. The aim of our study was to determine whether efficiency of the full-site integration activity is correlated with the oligomerization state of IN.
For that purpose we stabilized the multimeric structure of the enzyme by chemical crosslinking. We determined the activity of the isolated different IN monomers and multimers and observed that the cross-linked tetrameric form of IN is the minimal oligomer that is able to perform full-site integration of a substrate carrying the two LTRs. DNA was extracted and purified as previously described 9. HIV-1 IN was expressed in yeast and purified as previously described Proteins were eluted with a flow rate of 0.
The protein composition of the pooled fractions was confirmed by mass spectrometry. The concerted integration reaction conditions were similar to those described in reference 13, except that no cellular proteins were added and the HIV-1 system was used. IN activity was quantified by scanning the bands using the NIH software. All IN activities were quantified by scanning of the bands after gel electrophoresis and autoradiography using the NIH software. Both ampicillin and tetracycline resistance genes carry an amb mutation. These proteins are thus expressed only in the presence of the supF gene products.
The platinum derivative was prepared as described before To determine whether the yeast recombinant IN was able to catalyze the in vitro concerted integration reaction, the purified enzyme was assayed as described in the Material and Methods section. The donor—target products were visualized by agarose gel electrophoresis using radioactively labeled donors. This shows that this enzyme was less efficient for performing the whole integration reaction than the purified preintegration complex PIC or INs from other retroviral sources 3 , A Gel analysis of the integration products.
SI: Self-integration products. M: Markers base pairs. The structure of the expected products are also described in this figure. The percentage of the total integrated substrate was reported on the graph. Restriction analyses were performed to assess the nature of the products data not shown. Form I comprises circular molecules resulting from the integration of one LTR one-site or non-concerted integration, nCI and of two LTRs concerted integration, CI from the same donor into the receptor plasmid.
Form II corresponds to linear full-site concerted integration products of two LTRs from two donor molecules into the receptor plasmid. Since form I includes the sum of different integration products concerted and non-concerted and all the linear products found in form II may be considered as originating from concerted integration, the latter form was considered as representative of integration of two LTR into the target DNA. Gel analysis permits quantification of global integration efficiency but does not make it possible to distinguish one-site insertion from the concerted integration products.
Only DNA products carrying the amber mutation suppressor gene supF should be able to replicate and form colonies under drug selection. Thus, only the circular concerted integrated products corresponding to form I should replicate in bacteria. In contrast, no colonies were selected when the integration reaction was performed using an inactive IN that exhibits the DA mutation.
We sequenced the donor DNA-acceptor plasmid junctions of the isolated integration products to check the accuracy of the integration reaction duplication of short acceptor DNA sequence. As reported in Table 1 , of 20 clones, 12 exhibited a target DNA duplication of 5 bp, the hallmark of HIV-1 IN in vivo integration activity, 6 clones showed a duplication of different sizes and 2 clones carried a short deletion of the target DNA.
These results indicate that INs purified from yeast shares the same in vitro characteristics as other recombinant INs obtained from bacteria 15 , Sequence analysis of donor—target junctions from clones produced by wild type IN. This could be due to: i a need for auxiliary, viral or cellular proteins that are absent from the in vitro preparation; ii differences between the specific activities of virion and recombinant integrases and iii inefficient folding or oligomerization of the enzyme.
We investigated this by studying the possible link between IN multimerization and its in vitro integration activity and the in vitro activity of pre-stabilized IN oligomers. To address the question of the enzymatic activity versus the oligomerization state of HIV-1 IN, the enzyme was crosslinked to form stable multimers. The chemical crosslinking agent used was cis -aquahydroxydiamino platinum.
This technique allows the formation of covalent bonds between platinum and the potential acceptors on proteins and nucleic acids, mainly the sulfur-containing groups of cysteine or methionine residues, the imidazole rings in histidine residues, and the N group of guanine, adenine and cytosine The elution profile of the different forms of IN was checked with known molecular weight protein markers Figure 2A. Before the crosslinking treatment IN appeared in solution mainly as a monomer—dimer equilibrium while a lower but significant amount of tetramer was detected Figure 2A , 0 min indicating that our yeast recombinant IN has the same oligomeric structure in solution as recombinant bacterial IN 18 , As expected, the time duration of the crosslinking treatment increased the proportion of oligomeric forms of the enzyme including tetramers of IN Figure 2A , 45 and min.
High molecular weight aggregates were eliminated through centrifugation before loading onto the column. IN pmol was crosslinked for different lengths of time and products were loaded on a Superose 12 column. Migration of the molecular weight markers is indicated. B Size of the IN oligomers determined by gel filtration chromatography. The elution position of each fraction was reported shown as triangles in this figure and compared to elution profile of known molecular weight markers shown as clubs in the figure : catalase kDa , bovine serum albumin 67 kDa , ovalbumin 43 kDa and chymotrypsinogen A 25 kDa.
To obtain stable oligomers we performed a min incubation of IN in the presence of AHDAP and chromatographed through the Superose column allowing sufficient separation in order to isolate tetramers, dimers and monomers. Fractions containing the different oligomeric forms of IN were collected and their nature was checked by loading an aliquot of each fraction onto a new Superose column.
As reported in Figure 2B the fractions migrated as expected from their corresponding oligomeric size. Purified fractions of crosslinked IN oligomers were obtained and stocked at sub-micromolar protein concentrations from to nM. Those concentrations were maintained during all subsequent studies. Since under these conditions wild type IN appears mainly as a monomer, as described previously by time-resolved fluorescence anisotropy 18 , no re-association of the purified crosslinked oligomers was expected to take place during further steps of this study.
The fractions were tested for concerted integration Figure 3A. We focused our interest on integration products I and II since they are the most representative of the physiological integration reaction. Interestingly, amongst the crosslinked forms of IN, only the fraction containing tetramers lane IN Te was able to catalyze the formation of the full-site concerted integration form II product.
A control with IN that was not crosslinked lane IN NC showed that this fraction was also able to perform the concerted integration reaction in addition to non-concerted integration. Integration products were further analyzed by cloning them into bacteria. As reported in Figure 3B , a mean value of 25 clones were recovered from the cloning of the integration products obtained with non-crosslinked IN and 70 with crosslinked tetramers indicating a higher level of concerted integration catalyzed by the tetramer of IN as compared with the non-crosslinked protein.
In order to identify the structure of the integration products, 20 clones were isolated and sequenced for each condition Table 2. From the 20 clones obtained with non-crosslinked IN, 11 exhibited a target DNA duplication of 5 bp as expected from HIV-1 IN activity, 6 exhibited a duplication comprising sizes from 3 to 6 bp and 3 exhibited a deletion in the acceptor DNA.
In sharp contrast, all the clones obtained with products of the reaction catalyzed by the IN tetramers exhibited the HIV-1 IN 5 bp duplication hallmark. This striking result strongly supports the idea that crosslinked IN tetramers display a higher concerted integration activity than non-crosslinked IN tetramers thereby suggesting the involvement of the tetrameric forms in the physiological integration of both LTR viral ends in the infected cell.
Sequence analysis of donor—target junctions from clones produced by non-crosslinked and crosslinked tetrameric IN. Plasmid DNA from the selected clones was purified and sequenced as described in Materials and Methods. Both processing and strand transfer activities were detected only with the dimeric form of IN. Taken together these results show that the different oligomeric forms of IN do not share the same in vitro catalytic properties. Monomers were inactive for all specific IN activities. In contrast, the full-site integration of both LTR extremities required at least one tetramer. The requirement of high concentrations of non-physiological molecules like PEG and DMSO to obtain efficient in vitro integrations catalyzed by wild type IN NC suggests that this recombinant protein might need the presence of these agents to attain a significant degree of activity.
To investigate this hypothesis, we tested the effect of these compounds on the full-site integration reaction catalyzed with the purified IN Te. Effect of reaction conditions on concerted integration activity. These results indicate that: i the tetrameric form of IN possesses biochemical properties closer to the enzyme found in the infected cell than to the native non-crosslinked IN preparation and ii DMSO could compensate for deficient oligomerization of the non-crosslinked IN required for efficient in vitro integration.
In contrast, PEG may act directly on the integration process most probably via a molecular crowding effect. Thus, we used the crosslinking approach to analyze the oligomeric forms of the enzyme bound to different DNA substrates. The products were subjected to DNase I treatment, in order to eliminate non-IN-protected DNA tails and to distinguish between monomers and higher oligomeric forms of IN bound to the oligonucleotide.
High molecular weight multimeric products unable to enter the gel were obtained when IN was crosslinked to the DNA oligonucleotide without a viral sequence Figure 5A. The first band, termed a , which presents a size that corresponds to a monomer of IN, was observed before the formation of the second IN—DNA complex, termed b.
