Synthetic Rescue

A genetic interaction is inferred when mutations or deletions of one gene rescues the lethality or growth defect of a strain mutated or deleted for another gene.


Involvement of 3-methyladenine DNA glycosylases Mag1p and Mag2p in base excision repair of methyl methanesulfonate-damaged DNA in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

Kanamitsu K, Tanihigashi H, Tanita Y, Inatani S, Ikeda S

Schizosaccharomyces pombe has two paralogues of 3-methyladenine DNA glycosylase, Mag1p and Mag2p, which share homology with Escherichia coli AlkA. To clarify the function of these redundant enzymes in base excision repair (BER) of alkylation damage, we performed several genetic analyses. The mag1 and mag2 single mutants as well as the double mutant showed no obvious methyl methanesulfonate (MMS) sensitivity. Deletion ... [more]
