Evidence for mutations in the structural gene for homocitrate synthase in Saccharomycopsis lipolytica

Abstract

Eight strains devoid of homocitrate synthase activity were found among lysine requiring mutants of the yeast Saccharomycopsis lipolytica. Genetic analysis of these strains showed that they were all affected at the same locus LYS 1. Three lines of evidence suggest that this locus defines a structural gene for homocitrate synthase. First, the mutations show… (More)
