Abstract

The RAD1 and RAD10 genes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are required for nucleotide excision repair and they also act in mitotic recombination. The Rad1-Rad10 complex has a single-stranded DNA endonuclease activity. Here, we show that the mismatch repair genes MSH2 and MSH3 function in mitotic recombination. For both his3 and his4 duplications, and for homologous integration of a linear DNA fragment into the genome, the msh3Δ mutation has an effect on recombination similar to that of the rad1Δ and rad10Δ mutations. The msh2Δ mutation also reduces the rate of recombination of the his3 duplication and lowers the incidence of homologous integration of a linear DNA fragment. Epistasis analyses indicate that MSH2 and MSH3 function in the RAD1-RAD10 recombination pathway, and studies presented here suggest an involvement of the RAD1-RAD10 pathway in reciprocal recombination. The possible roles of Msh2, Msh3, Rad1, and Rad10 proteins in genetic recombination are discussed. Coupling of mismatch binding proteins with the recombinational machinery could be important for ensuring genetic fidelity in the recombination process.
