Hot spots of recombination in fission yeast: inactivation of the M26 hot spot by deletion of the ade6 promoter and the novel hotspot ura4-aim.

Abstract

The M26 mutation in the ade6 gene of Schizosaccharomyces pombe creates a hot spot of meiotic recombination. A single base substitution, the M26 mutation is situated within the open reading frame, near the 5' end. It has previously been shown that the heptanucleotide sequence 5' ATGACGT 3', which includes the M26 mutation, is required for hot spot activity… (More)
