The Saccharomyces cerevisiae RAD9 cell cycle checkpoint gene is required for optimal repair of UV-induced pyrimidine dimers in both G(1) and G(2)/M phases of the cell cycle.

Abstract

Cells respond to DNA damage by activating both cellular growth arrest and DNA repair processes. In Saccharomyces cerevesiae the RAD9 gene controls DNA damage-mediated cell cycle arrest that is known to allow efficient repair. To ascertain whether RAD9 plays a role in DNA repair per se, the removal of UV-induced photolesions was assessed in synchronized… (More)
