A putative tolerance, induced by heat shock (HS), to the lethal and mutagenic effects of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) photoaddition and hyperthermia was analyzed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae using the wild-type strain N123 and the isogenic DNA repair-deficient mutant pso3-1. In wild-type cells, the HS (38 degrees C for 1 h) did not modify either the survival or the mutation frequency observed after 8-MOP photoaddition, even though it conferred protection against the lethal effect of hyperthermia (50 degrees C). In the pso3-1 mutant, HS induced an increase of the survival, and a decrease of the mutation frequency, after 8-MOP photoaddition and it also protected against the lethal effect of hyperthermia. The responses induced by HS were specific for 8-MOP photoaddition, since they were not observed after 254 nm ultraviolet-light damage. These results indicate that the protection conferred by HS depends of the type of lesion, and operates through the induction of different repair processes. In the pso3-1 mutant, HS could channel the repair intermediates to and error-free repair pathway.
