Abstract The DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) is a nuclear serine/threonine protein kinase composed of a large catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs) and a heterodimeric DNA-targeting subunit Ku. DNA-PK is a major component of the nonhomologous end-joining pathway of DNA double-strand breaks repair. Although DNA-PK has been biochemically characterized in vitro, relatively little is known about its functions in the context of DNA repair and how its kinase activity is precisely regulated in vivo. Here, we report that cellular depletion of the individual catalytic subunits of protein kinase CK2 by RNA interference leads to significant cell death in M059K human glioblastoma cells expressing DNA-PKcs, but not in their isogenic counterpart, that is M059J cells, devoid of DNA-PKcs. The lack of CK2 results in enhanced DNA-PKcs activity and strongly inhibits DNA damage-induced autophosphorylation of DNA-PKcs at S2056 as well as repair of DNA double-strand breaks. By the application of the in situ proximity ligation assay, we show that CK2 interacts with DNA-PKcs in normal growing cells and that the association increases upon DNA damage. These results indicate that CK2 has an important role in the modulation of DNA-PKcs activity and its phosphorylation status providing important insights into the mechanisms by which DNA-PKcs is regulated in vivo.
