Sammanfattning

Mutations in TWINKLE cause autosomal dominant progressive external ophthalmoplegia, a human disorder associated with multiple deletions in the mitochondrial DNA. TWINKLE displays primary sequence similarity to the phage T7 gene 4 primase-helicase, but no specific enzyme activity has been assigned to the protein. We have purified recombinant TWINKLE to near homogeneity and demonstrate here that TWINKLE is a DNA helicase with 5' to 3' directionality and distinct substrate requirements. The protein needs a stretch of 10 nucleotides of single-stranded DNA on the 5'-side of the duplex to unwind duplex DNA. In addition, helicase activity is not observed unless a short single-stranded 3'-tail is present. The helicase activity has an absolute requirement for hydrolysis of a nucleoside 5'-triphosphate, with UTP being the optimal substrate. DNA unwinding by TWINKLE is specifically stimulated by the mitochondrial single-stranded DNA-binding protein. Our enzymatic characterization strongly supports the notion that TWINKLE is the helicase at the mitochondrial DNA replication fork and provides evidence for a close relationship of the DNA replication machinery in bacteriophages and mammalian mitochondria.
