The effects of the previously identified mutations in nuclear genes SRM8, SRM12, SRM15, and SRM17on the maintenance of chromosomes and recombinant plasmids in Saccharomyces cerevisiaecells and on cell sensitivity to ionizing radiation were studied. The srm8mutation caused an increase in spontaneous chromosome loss in diploid cells. In yeast cells with the intact mitochondrial genome, all examined srmmutations decreased the mitotic stability of a centromeric recombinant plasmid with the chromosomal ARS element. Mutations srm12, srm15, and srm17also decreased the mitotic stability of a centromereless plasmid containing the same ARS element, whereas the srm8mutation did not markedly affect the maintenance of this plasmid. Mutations srm8, srm12, and srm17were shown to increase cell sensitivity to γ-rays. The SRM8gene was mapped, cloned, and found to correspond to the open reading frame YJLO76w in chromosome X.
