Competition between adjacent meiotic recombination hotspots in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae



Competition between adjacent meiotic recombination hotspots in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae



Genetics 145(3): 661-670



In a wild-type strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a hotspot for meiotic recombination is located upstream of the HIS4 gene. An insertion of a 49-bp telomeric sequence into the coding region of HIS4 strongly stimulates meiotic recombination and the local formation of meiosis-specific double-strand DNA breaks (DSBs). When strains are constructed in which both hotspots are heterozygous, hotspot activity is substantially less when the hotspots are on the same chromosome than when they are on opposite chromosomes.
