Activation of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) near sites of DNA breaks facilitates recruitment of DNA repair proteins and promotes chromatin relaxation in part through the action of chromatin-remodeling enzyme Amplified in Liver Cancer 1 (ALC1). Through proteomic analysis we find that ALC1 interacts after DNA damage with Tripartite Motif-containing 33 (TRIM33), a multifunctional protein implicated in transcriptional regulation, TGF-β signaling, and tumorigenesis. We demonstrate that TRIM33 is dynamically recruited to DNA damage sites in a PARP1- and ALC1-dependent manner. TRIM33-deficient cells show enhanced sensitivity to DNA damage and prolonged retention of ALC1 at sites of DNA breaks. Conversely, overexpression of TRIM33 alleviates the DNA repair defects conferred by ALC1 overexpression. Thus, TRIM33 plays a role in PARP-dependent DNA damage response and regulates ALC1 activity by promoting its timely removal from sites of DNA damage.
