Studies on X-ray sensitive mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Benathen 1973, Benathen and Beam 1977) show that the XS6, XS8 and XS9 genes are not only involved in the repair of X-ray-induced damage but also in the repair of U.V.-induced damage. Analysis of the U.V. sensitivity of multiple xs mutants indicates the participation of three repair pathways… CONTINUE READING
