Molecular cloning and characterization of the RAD1 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Gene. 1983 Dec;26(2-3):119-26. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(83)90181-6.


We have cloned the RAD1 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and physically mapped it to a 4.0-kb DNA fragment from chromosome XVI. The RAD1 gene determines a transcript of 3.1 kb, and the direction of transcription was found to be leftwards, from EcoRI towards Bg/II (Fig. 1). Deletions of the RAD1 gene were made and were found to have no effect on viability of vegetative cells or spores, or on sporulation.
