    Notes: One-step gene disruption constructs for disruption of HIS3, LEU2, TRP1 or URA3 with each of the other three markers have been constructed. All of these constructs have been tested and found to effectively convert markers either in gene disruptions or on plasmids. The ‘swapped’ strains allow the unambiguous genetic analysis of synthetic phenotypes with multiple genes, even if the original gene disruptions were made with the same marker. They also allow introduction of multiple plasmids in a single transformant, even if the original plasmids had the same marker, and allow transformation of plasmids into strains containing gene disruptions made with the same marker that is on the plasmids. These ‘marker-swap’ plasmids therefore eliminate the need for much subcloning to change markers. Marker-swapped alleles are acceptably stable mitotically and meiotically for most applications.© 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: New tools are needed for speedy and systematic study of the numerous genes revealed by the sequence of the yeast genome. We have developed a novel transformation strategy, based on ‘split-marker’ recombination, which allows generation of chromosomal deletions and direct gene cloning. For this purpose, pairs of yeast vectors have been constructed which offer a number of advantages for large-scale applications such as one-step cloning of target sequence homologs and combinatorial use. Gene deletions or gap-repair clonings are obtained by cotransformation of yeast by a pair of recombinant plasmids. Gap-repair vectors are based on the URA3 marker. Deletion vectors include the URA3, LYS2 and kanMX selection markers flanked by I-SceI sites, which allow their subsequent elimination from the transformant without the need for counter-selection. The application of the ‘split-marker’ vectors to the analysis of a few open reading frames of chromosome XI is described.

    Notes: The disruption of eight novel genes was realized in two genetic backgrounds. Among these open reading frames, NO333, NO348 and NO364 presented homologies with other proteins of yeast or other organisms, whereas NO320, NO325, NO339, NO384 and NO388 showed no similarity with any protein. Tetrad analysis of heterozygous deletant strains revealed that NO348, NO364 and NO388 are essential genes for vegetative growth, whereas NO320, NO325, NO333, NO339 and NO384 are non-essential. Basic phenotypic analyses of the non-lethal deletant strains as suggested in the six-pack B0 programme did not reveal any significant differences between parental and mutant strains. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: Mam33p (mitochondrial acidic matrix protein) is a soluble protein, located in mitochondria of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is synthesized as a precursor with an N-terminal mitochondrial targeting sequence that is processed on import. Mam33p assembles to a homo-oligomeric complex in the mitochondrial matrix. It can bind to the sorting signal of cytochrome b2 that directs this protein into the intermembrane space. Mam33p is encoded by an 801 bp open reading frame. Gene disruption did not result in a significant growth defect. Mam33p exhibits sequence similarity to gC1q-R, a human protein that has been implicated in the binding of complement factor C1q and kininogen. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: A 7·24 kb genomic DNA fragment from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome XVI was isolated by complementation of a new temperature-sensitive mutation tsa1. We determined the nucleotide sequence of this fragment located on the right arm of chromosome XVI. Among the three, complete open reading frames: YPR041w, YPR042c and YPR043w contained within this fragment, the gene YPR041w was shown to complement the tsa1 mutation and to correspond to the TIF5 gene encoding an essential protein synthesis initiation translation factor. The YPR042c gene encodes a hypothetical protein of 1075 amino acids containing four putative transmembrane segments and is non-essential for growth. The gene YPR043c encoding the 10 kDa product, highly similar to the human protein L37a from the 60S ribosomal subunit, was found to be essential and a dominant lethal. We conclude that three tightly linked yeast genes are involved in the translation process. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: Gene disruption and tagging can be achieved by homologous recombination in the yeast genome. Several PCR-based methods have been described towards this end. However these strategies are often limited in their applications and/or their efficiencies and may be technically demanding. Here we describe two plasmids for C-terminal tagging of proteins with the IgG binding domain of the Staphyloccocus aureus protein A. We also present simple and reliable strategies based on PCR to promote efficient integration of exogenous DNA into the yeast genome. These simple methods are not limited to specific strains or markers and can be used for any application requiring homologous recombination such as gene disruption and epitope tagging. These strategies can be used for consecutive introduction of various constructs into a single yeast strain. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: We have isolated Schizosaccharomyces pombe cDNAs corresponding to the genes his1+ and his5+. The his1 cDNA was isolated by functional complementation of the His- phenotype in a his1-29 gcn3 Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain, while the his5 cDNA was isolated as a suppressor of the 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (3-AT) sensitivity in a gcn3 S. cerevisiae strain. his1 and his5 are each present in single copy in haploid S. pombe. As is the case with S. cerevisiae, we have found that the growth of wild-type strains of S. pombe is sensitive to 3-AT, an inhibitor of imidazoleglycerol-phosphate dehydratase. This enzyme is encoded by the HIS3 gene in S. cerevisiae and the his5+ gene in S. pombe. Treatment of S. pombe cells with 3-AT leads to a small increase in the level of the his5 transcript, but no effect is seen on the level of the his1 transcript. This is in contrast to larger increases in transcription of amino acid biosynthetic genes, regulated by the general amino acid control, seen previously in similarly treated cultures of S. cerevisiae. These results suggest that there are likely to be some differences in the regulation of amino acid biosynthesis between these two yeasts.Sequences reported here have been deposited with GenBank as U07830 (his1) and U07831 (his5).

    Notes: Gene disruption is an important method for genetic analysis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We have designed a polymerase chain reaction-directed gene disruption cassette that allows rapid disruption of genes in S. cerevisiae without previously cloning them. In addition, this cassette allows recycling of URA3, generating gene disruptions without the permanent loss of the ura3 marker. An indefinite number of disruptions can therefore be made in the same strain.

    Notes: Actin molecules are major cytoskeleton components of all eukaryotic cells. All conventional actins that have been identified so far are 374-376 amino acids in size and exhibit at least 70% amino acid sequence identity when compared with one another. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, one conventional actin gene ACT1 and three so-called actin-related genes, ACT2, ACT3 and ACT5, have been identified. We report here the discovery of a new actin-related gene in this organism, which we have named ACT4. The deduced protein, Act4, of 449 amino acids, exhibits only 33·4%, 26·7%, 23·4% and 29·2% identity to Act1, Act2, Act3 and Act5, respectively. In contrast, it is 68·4% identical to the product of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe Act2 gene and has a similar level of identity to other Sch. pombe Act2 homologues. This places Act4 in the Arp3 family of actin-related proteins. ACT4 gene disruption and tetrad analysis demonstrate that this gene is essential for the vegetative growth of yeast cells. The act4 mutants exhibit heterogenous morphological phenotypes. We hypothesize that Act4 may have multiple roles in the cell cycle. The sequence has been deposited in the Genome Sequence Data Base under Accession Number L37111.

    Notes: The ORF5 of Kluyveromyces lactis killer plasmid pGKL2 (k2) is capable of encoding a small neutral protein of 18 kDa of as yet unassigned function. Although this ORF is located between two larger ORFs, 4 and 6, which it overlaps, RNA analysis showed that it is transcribed monocistronically. One-step gene disruption of ORF5, via in vivo homologous recombination between native plasmid k2 and a transfer vector employing the Saccharomyces cerevisiae LEU2 gene fused to the k2 UCS5 element, yielded Leu+ transformants at high frequencies. The transformants were found to carry a new recombinant form of k2 with ORF5 replaced by the LEU2 marker, termed rk2, in addition to the wild-type plasmids k1 and k2. Northern analysis detected a plasmid-dependent LEU2 transcript distinct in size and regulation from its nuclear counterpart. Recombinant plasmid, rk2, was unable to displace native k2 during Leu+ selective growth; however rk2 was displaced by k2 during non-selective growth. Thus, ORF5 appears to be an essential gene for plasmid integrity and/or maintenance. The ORF5 product was detected by over-expression of an epitope-tagged allele in the baculovirus system. Western analysis using a monoclonal antibody specific for the epitope tag identified a protein band with apparent molecular weight of 20 kDa, corresponding in size to the predicted product.
