Abstract: Abstract:MutS homolog 6 (MSH6) of the MSH2–MSH6 complex binds simple mispairs and small insertion-deletion loops (IDL) then initiates DNA mismatch repair in eukaryotes. We have shown the ability of Cd2+ to downregulate msh2/msh6 expression in zebrafish embryos via oxidative stress. This study explored the effects of Cd2+ and Hg2+ on MSH6-mediated mismatch binding activities. MSH6-mediated G-T and IDL-specific binding activities were significantly inhibited at similar levels after exposing zebrafish embryos at 1 h postfertilization) to HgCl2 or CdCl2 at 1.0 to 2.5 μM for 9 h, but MSH6 synthesis was found to be less sensitive to Hg2+ than to Cd2+. Real-time RT-PCR and in situ hybridization also detected a weaker susceptibility of MSH gene transcription to Hg2+. The weaker response of MSH gene activities to Hg2+ correlated with the lower oxidative stress-inducing potential of Hg2+. Hence, Hg2+ targets mismatch sensing capacity at protein function rather than at transcription level.
