Abstract

The discovery of three Rad51 paralogs in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Rad55, Rad57, and Dmc1), four in Schizosaccharomyces pombe (Rhp55, Rhp57, Rlp1, and Dmc1), and six in human (Rad51B, Rad51C, Rad51D, Xrcc2, Xrcc3, and Dmc1) indicate the functional diversity and specialization of RecA-like proteins in the line from the lower to higher organisms. This paper reports characterization of a number of mitotic and meiotic phenotypes of the cells mutant in rlp1 gene, encoding a paralog of Rad51, in fission yeasts. No evident role of Rlp1 protein in the repair of spontaneous lesions emerging during mating type switching was found. Rlp1 does not interact physically with Dmc1. An elevated expression of rhp51 has a dominant negative effect on the cell survivability of rlp1Δ mutant exposed to a DNA-damaging agent. We assume that Rlp1 acts at the stages of recombination connected with disassembling of the nucleoprotein filament formed by Rhp51 protein.
