Nonhomologous DNA end joining in Schizosaccharomyces pombe efficiently eliminates DNA double-strand-breaks from haploid sequences.


Cells of higher eucaryotes are known to possess mechanisms of illegitimate recombination which promote the joining between nonhomologous ends of broken DNA and thus may serve as basic tools of double-strand-break (DSB) repair. Here we show that cells of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe also contain activities of nonhomologous DNA end joining… (More)
