A promoter deletion reduces the rate of mitotic, but not meiotic, recombination at the HIS4 locus in yeast.

Several investigators have reported that transcription stimulates some types of mitotic recombination in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We find that mutations that reduce the rate of transcription of the yeast HIS4 gene in vegetative cells reduce the frequency of mitotic, but not meiotic, recombination events.
