Abstract

The basidiomycete fungus Schizophyllum commune was found to have both photo-repair and dark-repair systems for UV-induced damage. Three UV-sensitive mutants were isolated and characterized for ability to repair UV-induced damage in light and dark, and for cross-sensitivity to caffeine and methyl methanesulfonate. Two of the mutants were damaged, to different extents, in their capacity for excision repair; one of these mutants was also probably damaged in post-replication repair. The third mutant was damaged only in post- replication repair.
