The ADE2 gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae: sequence and new vectors

Gene. 1990 Oct 30;95(1):91-8. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(90)90418-q.


We have determined the sequence of a DNA fragment encoding the ADE2 gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A DNA fragment of 2241 bp capable of complementing ade2 mutations was modified so it is available as a single BglII fragment for use in yeast vectors or for gene disruptions. The minimal fragment codes for a putative protein which is highly similar to the protein encoded by the ADE6 gene from Schizosaccharomyces pombe and to the proteins encoded by the purEK operon of Escherichia coli.
