Gene targeting provides a powerful tool to modify endogenous loci to contain specific mutations, insertions and deletions. Precise allele replacement, with no other chromosomal changes (e.g., insertion of selectable markers or heterologous promoters), maintains physiologically relevant context. Established methods for precise allele replacement in fission(More)
In the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, sup9 mutations can suppress the termination of translation at nonsense (stop) codons. We localized sup9 physically to the spctrnaser.11 locus and confirmed that one allele (sup9-UGA) alters the anticodon of a serine tRNA. We also found that another purported allele is not allelic. Instead, strains with that(More)
