Schizosaccharomyces pombe (972h)

Synthetic Lethality

A genetic interaction is inferred when mutations or deletions in separate genes, each of which alone causes a minimal phenotype, result in lethality when combined in the same cell under a given condition.


Fission yeast homologs of human XPC and CSB, rhp41 and rhp26, are involved in transcription-coupled repair of methyl methanesulfonate-induced DNA damage.

Kanamitsu K, Ikeda S

Methyl methanesulfonate (MMS) methylates nitrogen atoms in purines, and predominantly produces 7-methylguanine and 3-methyladenine (3-meA). Previously, we showed that base excision repair (BER) and nucleotide excision repair (NER) synergistically function to repair MMS-induced DNA damage in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Here, we studied the roles of NER components in repair of 3-meA and BER intermediates such as the AP ... [more]
