NameRAD7
OrganismSaccharomyces cerevisiae (replicative)
Aging PhenotypeNo effect on life-span
Allele TypeDeletion
StrainPSY316
DescriptionDeletion has no effect on life span in PSY316 (Park et al., 1999).
Gene FunctionInvolved in nucleotide excision repair of inactive genes (Scott and Waters, 1997).
Other PhenotypesMutation results in decreased repair of the non-transcribed strand in rDNA (Verhage et al., 1996).
