Possible functions of previously described genes RAD29 and RAD31 involved in DNA repair were determined by analyzing the interaction between these genes and mutations in the genes of the three basic epistatic groups: RAD3 (nucleotide excision repair), RAD6 (error-prone mutagenic repair system), RAD52 (recombination repair pathway), and also the apn1 mutation that blocks the synthesis of major AP endonuclease (base excision repair). The results obtained in these studies and the estimation of the capability for excision repair of lesions induced by 8-metoxipsoralen and subsequent exposure to long-wavelength UV light in mutants for these genes led to the assumption that the RAD29 and RAD31 genes are involved in yeast DNA repair control.
