Genetic evidence for preferential strand transfer during meiotic recombination in yeast.


Journal Article

During meiotic recombination in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, heteroduplexes are formed as an intermediate in the exchange process. In the formation of an asymmetric heteroduplex, one chromosome acts as a donor of a single DNA strand and the other acts as a recipient. We present genetic evidence that the nontranscribed strand is donated more frequently than the transcribed strand in spores that have an unrepaired mismatch at the HIS4 locus.
