An initiation site for meiotic gene conversion is located in the promoter region of the ARG4 locus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We have tested the hypothesis that the initiation site is identical with the promoter by making a series of small deletions that remove specific promoter elements. Disruption of most promoter elements does not lower the level of gene conversion in ARG4, and analysis of RNA levels at the time of recombination in meiosis reveals no direct correlation between the level of… CONTINUE READING
