Rad26p, a yeast homologue of human Cockayne syndrome B with an ATPase activity, plays a pivotal role in stimulating DNA repair at the coding sequences of active genes. On the other hand, DNA repair at inactive genes or silent areas of the genome is not regulated by Rad26p. However, how Rad26p recognizes DNA lesions at the actively transcribing genes to(More)
Recently, we have demonstrated a predominant association of Rad26p with the coding sequences but not promoters of several GAL genes following transcriptional induction. Here, we show that the occupancy of histone H2A-H2B dimer at the coding sequences of these genes is not altered following transcriptional induction in the absence of Rad26p. A histone(More)
