Cloning of a gene for S-adenosylmethionine synthesis inSaccharomyces cerevisiae


The gene for ethionine resistance was isolated, and its phenotypic characteristics were investigated. The cells transformed with this gene showed strong resistance to DL-ethionine, and S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) was remarkably accumulated within the cells. Judging from the restriction map of this gene, it suggests that the gene is not the gene SAM1 but SAM2… (More)
