While the counterselectable Schizosaccharomyces pombe ura4 + gene can be used to prepare a site in the S. pombe genome to receive an unmarked mutant allele (loss of ura4 + confers 5FOA-resistant (5FOAR) growth), the desired unmarked knock-in strains are generally outnumbered by spontaneously arising 5FOAR mutants. Relative to the same approach using the(More)
Schizosaccharomyces pombe detects extracellular glucose via a G protein-mediated cyclic AMP (cAMP)-signaling pathway activating protein kinase A (PKA) and regulating transcription of genes involved in metabolism and sexual development. In this pathway, Gpa2 Gα binds to and activates adenylyl cyclase in response to glucose detection by the Git3 G(More)
