The coexistence effects of multiple kinds of oxidized deoxyribonucleotides were examined using an SV40 origin-dependent in vitro replication system with a HeLa extract. Oxidized dGTP and dATP, 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine 5'-triphosphate (8-OH-dGTP) and 2-hydroxy-2'-deoxyadenosine 5'-triphosphate (2-OH-dATP), were used in this study. The mutation frequency synergistically increased when the two oxidized deoxyribonucleotides were together in the reaction. 2-OH-dATP enhanced the mutagenicity of 8-OH-dGTP, since the induced mutations were A.T --> C.G transversions. The contribution of the highly error-prone DNA polymerase eta was unlikely, since similar results were observed with an XP-V cell extract. The possible involvement of 2-hydroxyadenine in the complementary (template) strand was excluded on the basis of experiments using plasmids containing 2-hydroxyadenine as templates in the reactions with 8-OH-dGTP. 2-OH-dATP suppressed hydrolysis of 8-OH-dGTP, suggesting that the inhibition of the MTH1 protein played the major role in the enhancement. These results highlight the importance of specific hydrolysis of 8-OH-dGTP for the suppression of its induced mutation.
