The budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, is an excellent model system for the study of DNA polymerases and their roles in DNA replication, repair, and recombination. Presently ten DNA polymerases have been purified and characterized from S. cerevisiae. Rapid advances in genome sequencing projects for yeast and other organisms have greatly facilitated and accelerated the identification of yeast enzymes and their homologues in other eukaryotic species. This article reviews current available research on yeast DNA polymerases and their functional roles in DNA metabolism. Relevant information about eukaryotic homologues of these enzymes will also be discussed.
