In a previous study, we mapped spontaneous mitotic reciprocal crossovers (RCOs) in a 120-kb interval of chromosome V of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. About three-quarters of the crossovers were associated with gene conversion tracts. About 40% of these conversion tracts had the pattern expected as a consequence of repair of a double-stranded DNA break (DSB) of an unreplicated chromosome. We test this hypothesis by examining the crossovers and gene conversion events induced by gamma irradiation in G1- and G2-arrested diploid yeast cells. The gene conversion patterns of G1-irradiated cells (but not G2-irradiated cells) mimic conversion events associated with spontaneous RCOs, confirming our previous conclusion that many spontaneous crossovers are initiated by a DSB on an unreplicated chromosome.
