Two studies have provided separate pieces of information that bear on the functional and evolutionary significance of introns in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Holstege et al+, 1998; Spingola et al+, 1999)+ By the measure of the number of introns within its genes, budding yeast seems a disappointing eukaryote+ Fewer than 250 of the more than 6,200 annotated genes are known to have introns, and fewer than 10 are known have more than one intron (Spingola et al+, 1999)+ In contrast… CONTINUE READING
