We examined the autonomously replicating sequence (ARS) activity of some fragments derived from the LEU2 region of Saccharomyces cerevisiae onto Saccharomyces exiguus Yp74L-3. A DNA fragment functioning as an ARS in S. exiguus, but not in S. cerevisiae, was shown to exist. The ARS activity for S. exiguus was reduced by the 2-μm plasmid origin of S… CONTINUE READING
