Abstract: Mechanisms for genetic control of cell division cycle (checkpoint control) have been studied in most detail in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. To clarify the role of checkpoint genes RAD9, RAD17, RAD24, and RAD53 in cell radioresistance, double mutants were analyzed for cell sensitivity to ionizing radiation. Double mutants carrying mutations in combination with mutation rad9Delta were shown to manifest the epistatic type of interaction. Our results suggest that checkpoint genes RAD9, RAD17, RAD24, and RAD53 belong to a single epistatic group designated RAD9 and govern the same pathway. Genes RAD9 and RAD53 have a positive effect on sensitivity to gamma-radiation, whereas RAD17 and RAD24 have a negative effect. Interactions between mutations may differ when considering their sensitivity to gamma-radiation and UV light; mutations rad9Delta and rad24Delta were shown to manifest the additive effect in the first case and epistatic effect in the second.
