A newly characterized rad1 missense mutation (rad1-20) in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae maps to a region of the Rad1 polypeptide known to be required for Rad1-Rad10 complex formation. The UV sensitivity of the rad1-20 mutant can be partially and specifically corrected by overexpression of wild- type Rad10 protein. These results suggest that complex formation between the Rad1 and Rad10 proteins is required for nucleotide excision repair.
