The Polzeta translesion synthesis (TLS) DNA polymerase is responsible for over 50% of spontaneous mutagenesis and virtually all damage-induced mutagenesis in yeast. We previously demonstrated that reversion of the lys2DeltaA746 -1 frameshift allele detects a novel type of +1 frameshift that is accompanied by one or more base substitutions and depends(More)
The mechanisms by which imbalanced dNTPs induce mutations have been well characterized within a test tube, but not in vivo. We have examined mechanisms by which dNTP imbalances induce genome instability in strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae with different amino acid substitutions in Rnr1, the large subunit of ribonucleotide reductase. These strains have(More)
