Histone-beta-galactosidase protein fusions were used to identify the domain of yeast histone 2B, which targets this protein to the nucleus. Amino acids 28 to 33 in H2B were required for nuclear localization of such fusion proteins and thus constitute a nuclear localization sequence. The amino acid sequence in this region (Gly-29 Lys Lys Arg Ser Lys Ala) is(More)
Recombinant plasmids containing the Rous sarcoma virus long-terminal repeat (RSVLTR) promoter linked to either rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss) growth hormone 1 (rtGH1) or growth hormone 2 (rtGH2) cDNA were linearized and introduced into the fertilized eggs of zebrafish (Brachydanio rerio), channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), and common carp (Cyprinus(More)
Sequences between a pair of divergently transcribed histone genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae are able to confer periodic transcription during the cell cycle. This conclusion contrasts to our previous hypothesis that an ars (autonomously replicating sequence) 3' to this locus is a transcription timer for yeast histone genes. The promoter sequences required(More)
Recombinant plasmid containing the Drosophila beta-actin promoter coupled to a beta-galactosidase cassette was linearized and introduced in fertilized eggs of the red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) by electroporation. Fertilized abalone eggs tolerated electroporation well with larval survival rates between 70% and 84% of that for non-electroporated siblings.(More)
Analysis of cloned sequences for yeast histone genes H2A and H2B reveals that there are only two copies of this pair of genes within the haploid yeast genome. Within each copy, the genes for H2A and H2B are separated by approximately 700 bp of spacer DNA. The two copies are separated from one another in the yeast genome by a minimum distance of 35-60 kb.(More)
The levels of H2A and H2B mRNAs as a function of cell-cycle stage were determined by hybridization methods. The analysis was extended to H3 and H4 mRNAs by in vitro translation. Cells were partitioned into cell-cycle stages either by centrifugal elutriation or by G1 synchronization with the yeast mating pheromone, alpha factor. The data lead to the(More)
In order to identify determinants governing nuclear protein localization, we constructed a set of hybrid genes by fusing the S. cerevisiae gene, MAT alpha 2, coding for a presumptive nuclear protein, and the E. coli gene, lacZ, coding for beta-galactosidase. The resultant hybrid proteins contain 3, 13, 25, 67, or all 210 amino acids of wild-type alpha 2(More)
The intragenic organization of ribosomal DNA from a diploid strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was analyzed by using recombinant DNA molecules constructed in vitro. Restriction analysis of the yeast ribosomal DNA with the EcoRI restriction enzyme indicated that eight restriction fragments were present in the ribosomal DNA of this strain: X' (1.87 X 10(6)(More)
