Genetic analysis of gamma-ray mutagenesis in yeast. I. Reversion in radiation-sensitive strains.

Abstract

The frequency of revertants induced by 60Co gamma rays of the ochre allele, cyc1-9, has been measured in radiation-sensitive strains carrying one of 19 nonallelic mutations and in wild-type strains. The results indicate that ionizing radiation mutagenesis depends on the activity of the RAD6 group of genes and that the gene functions employed are very… (More)
