Abstract

THE RAD10 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is required for the incision step of excision repair of ultraviolet-damaged DNA (refs 1, 2), and it functions in mitotic recombination3. RAD10 has homology to the human excision repair gene ERCC-1 (ref.4). Here we describe the purification of the protein encoded by RAD10 and show that it is a DNA-binding protein with a strong preference for single-stranded DNA. We also show that RAD1O promotes the renaturation of complementary DNA strands.
