Methylation of arginine residues is a widespread post-translational modification of proteins catalyzed by a small family of protein arginine methyltransferases (PRMTs). Functionally, the modification appears to regulate protein functions and interactions that affect gene regulation, signalling and subcellular localization of proteins and nucleic acids. All members have been, to different degrees, characterized individually and their implication in cellular processes has been inferred from characterizing substrates and interactions. Here, we report the first comprehensive comparison of all eight canonical members of the human PRMT family with respect to subcellular localization and dynamics in living cells. We show that the individual family members differ significantly in their properties, as well as in their substrate specificities, suggesting that they fulfil distinctive, non-redundant functions in vivo. In addition, certain PRMTs display different subcellular localization in different cell types, implicating cell- and tissue-specific mechanisms for regulating PRMT functions.

We have identified a mammalian arginine N-methyltransferase, PRMT7, that can catalyze the formation of omega-NG-monomethylarginine in peptides. This protein is encoded by a gene on human chromosome 16q22.1 (human locus AK001502). We expressed a full-length human cDNA construct in Escherichia coli as a glutathione S-transferase (GST) fusion protein. We found that GST-tagged PRMT7 catalyzes the S-adenosyl-[methyl-3H]-l-methionine-dependent methylation of the synthetic peptide GGPGGRGGPGG-NH2 (R1). The radiolabeled peptide was purified by high-pressure liquid chromatography and acid hydrolyzed to free amino acids. When the hydrolyzed products were separated by high-resolution cation-exchange chromatography, we were able to detect one tritiated species which co-migrated with an omega-NG-monomethylarginine standard. Surprisingly, GST-PRMT7 was not able to catalyze the in vitro methylation of a GST-fibrillarin (amino acids 1-148) fusion protein (GST-GAR), a methyl-accepting substrate for the previously characterized PRMT1, PRMT3, PRMT4, PRMT5, and PRMT6 enzymes. Nor was it able to methylate myelin basic protein or histone H2A, in vitro substrates of PRMT5. This specificity distinguishes PRMT7 from all of the other known arginine methyltransferases. An additional unique feature of PRMT7 is that it seems to have arisen from a gene duplication event and contains two putative AdoMet-binding motifs. To see if both motifs were necessary for activity, each putative domain was expressed as a GST-fusion and tested for activity with peptides R1 and R2 (acetyl-GGRGG-NH2). These truncated proteins were enzymatically inactive, suggesting that both domains are required for functionality.
|Identification of new drug sensitivity genes using genetic suppressor elements: protein arginine N-methyltransferase mediates cell sensitivity to DNA-damaging agents.|

Genetic suppressor elements (GSEs) are cDNA fragments encoding either truncated proteins, acting as dominant-negative mutants, or inhibitory antisense RNA segments counteracting with the gene from which they are derived. To identify genes controlling the cell response to cytotoxic agents, a normalized retroviral library of randomly fragmented cDNAs from Chinese hamster cell line DC-3F was screened for GSEs conferring resistance to the topoisomerase II inhibitor 9-OH-ellipticine. From 218 cDNA fragments isolated, 11 functional GSEs, corresponding to at least 8 independent genes, were selected. The gene corresponding to the most abundant GSE encodes two proteins, p77 and p82, highly homologous to proteins detected in various species and carrying the sequence motifs characteristic of the protein arginine N-methyltransferase family. Furthermore, a methylase activity was observed on myelin basic protein in immunoprecipitates of hemagglutinin-tagged p77 and p82. Therefore, p77 and p82 are the first identified members of a new protein arginine N-methyltransferase family. A decreased expression of these enzymes is associated with either resistance or hypersensitivity to a broad range of DNA-damaging agents. Our data indicate that down-regulation of these enzymes in the GSE-expressing cells would alter one or several steps downstream of the drug-target interaction in the drug-response pathway.
