A quantitative PCR method is proposed that combines the use of a competitive internal standard with the sandwich hybridization of the products. The variability of the PCR efficiency was corrected using a specifically designed internal standard, competitive not only for the PCR amplification, but also for the hybridization on capture probes fixed onto(More)
Using a Saccharomyces cerevisiae ADH1 probe, a gene coding for a cytoplasmic alcohol dehydrogenase from Kluyveromyces marxianus ATCC 12424 (formerly K. fragilis) has been cloned. This gene is able to restore alcoholic fermentation in an ADH-null strain of S. cerevisiae and its encoded protein shows strong similarity with other yeast alcohol dehydrogenases(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the alcohol dehydrogenase genes ADH1 and ADH5 are part of a duplicated block of genome, thought to originate from a genome-wide duplication posterior to the divergence from the Kluyveromyces lineage. We report here the characterization of Kluyveromyces marxianus ADH2 and the five genes found in its immediate downstream region,(More)
