PARP inhibitors (PARPi) target homologous recombination defective tumour cells via synthetic lethality. Genome-wide and high-density CRISPR-Cas9 "tag, mutate and enrich" mutagenesis screens identified single amino acid mutations in PARP1 that cause profound PARPi-resistance. These included PARP1 mutations outside of the DNA interacting regions of the protein, such as mutations in solvent exposed regions of the catalytic domain and clusters of mutations around points of contact between ZnF, WGR and HD domains. These mutations altered PARP1 trapping, as did a mutation found in a clinical case of PARPi resistance. These genetic studies reinforce the importance of trapped PARP1 as a key cytotoxic DNA lesion and suggest that interactions between non-DNA binding domains of PARP1 influence cytotoxicity. Finally, different mechanisms of PARPi resistance (BRCA1 reversion, PARP1, 53BP1, REV7 mutation) had differing effects on chemotherapy sensitivity, suggesting that the underlying mechanism of PARPi resistance likely influences the success of subsequent therapies.
