Abstract: Sensitivity to the lethal action of the anticancer substance cisplatin was studied in the yeast mutants himl, hsm2, hsm3, and hsm6, deficient for repair of spontaneous and induced mutations. The himl and hsm3 mutants were as resistant to the agent under study as the wild-type strain. The survival of the double mutant rad2 hsm3 was higher than that of the single mutant rad2. The hsm2 and hsm6 mutants were more cisplatin-sensitive than the wild type. Cisplatin was shown to have high mutagenic and recombinogenic effects on yeast cells.
