Abstract

Spontaneous and UV induced unequal mitotic sister chromatid recombination was examined in RAD+ and rad52-1 strains carrying the LEU2 gene inserted in the rDNA locus. The rad52-1 mutation does not affect spontaneous sister chromatid recombination but greatly reduces the frequency of UV induced sister chromatid recombination.
