  Dysfunctional telomeres elicit the canonical DNA damage response, which includes the activation of the ATM or ATR kinase signaling pathways and end processing by nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) or homologous recombination (HR). The cellular response to DNA double-strand breaks has been proposed to involve chromatin remodeling and nucleosome eviction, but whether dysfunctional telomeres undergo chromatin reorganization is not known. Here, we report on the nucleosomal organization of telomeres that have become deprotected through the deletion of the shelterin components TRF2 or POT1. We found no evidence of changes in the nucleosomal organization of the telomeric chromatin or nucleosome eviction near the telomere terminus. An unaltered chromatin structure was observed at telomeres lacking TRF2, which activate the ATM kinase and are a substrate for NHEJ. Similarly, telomeres lacking POT1a and POT1b, which activate the ATR kinase, showed no overt nucleosome eviction. Finally, telomeres lacking TRF2 and Ku70, which are processed by HR, appeared to maintain their original nucleosomal organization. We conclude that ATM signaling, ATR signaling, NHEJ, and HR at deprotected telomeres can take place in the absence of overt nucleosome eviction.

  Flame furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (FF-AAS) is a newly developed flame atomic absorption spectrometric technique based on arranging a flame furnace onto the top of the flame burner head. In this fundamental investigation, 25 elements were carefully tested by using either thermospray FF-AAS or tungsten coil electrothermal vaporization FF-AAS, of which 15 volatile and semi-volatile elements (Cd, Tl, Ag, Pb, Zn, Hg, Cu, Sb, Bi, Te, In, As, Se, Sn and Au) exhibited better limits of detection compared to those by conventional FAAS; however, non-volatile or refractory elements (Fe, Co, Ni, Cr, Mn, Pd, Pt, Al, Be and V) showed inferior sensitivities by the proposed methods.
