The sequence of a 27 kb segment on the right arm of chromosome VII from Saccharomyces cerevisiae reveals MOL1, NAT2, RPL30B, RSR1, CYS4, PEM1/CHO2, NSR1 genes and ten new open reading frames

Yeast. 1995 Nov;11(14):1421-7. doi: 10.1002/yea.320111410.


The DNA sequence of a 26,677 bp fragment from the right arm of chromosome VII from Saccharomyces cerevisiae reveals 18 open reading frames (ORFs) longer than 300 bp. Eight ORFs correspond to previously characterized genes. G6620 is the 3' end of the MOL1 gene coding for a polypeptide similar to stress-inducible proteins from Fusarium; G6630 is the NAT2 gene which encodes a methionine N-acetyltransferase; G6635 is the RPL30B gene coding for the ribosomal protein L30; G6658 is RSR1 encoding a ras-related protein; G6667 is CYS4, the gene for cystathionine beta-synthase; G6670 is identical to ORF2 located close to CYS4; G6673 is PEM1/CHO2 encoding a phosphatidylethanolamine methyltransferase; G7001 is the NSR1 gene coding for a nuclear signal recognition protein. G6664 shares significant homology with the ORF YKR076w from chromosome XI. The other nine ORFs show no significant homology to any protein sequence presently available in the public data bases.
