Abstract

DNA double-strand breaks may occur both under the action of various exogenous factors and in the course of cell metabolism processes, in particular, upon mating type switching in yeast. Genes belonging to the epistatic group RAD52 are known to repiar such DNA damage. Molecular defects in mating type switching occurring after the deletion of gene rhp55 + encoding the paralog of recombinational protein Rhp51, which is a functional homolog of Escherichia coli RecA, were studied in fission yeast. Analysis of stable nonswitching segregants in h 90 rhp55 mutants with unchanged configuration of the mating type switching locus but with a drastically decreased level of double-strand DNA break formation at the mat1:1 locus demonstrated changes in DNA sequences within the region responsible for the generation of the breaks. These changes might have resulted from incorrect gene conversion upon repair of double-strand DNA breaks in Schizosaccharomyces pombe rhp55 mutants.
