Abstract

The rec2 mutant of Ustilago maydis is defective in DNA repair, induced allelic recombination, and meiosis. We cloned the REC2 gene by complementing the radiation-sensitive phenotype of the mutant using a genomic DNA library. The transcript of the REC2 gene was identified as a 2.8-kb damage-inducible RNA.
