Fourteen independent mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae defective in sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase activity were isolated using a colony autoradiographic screening technique. All 14 mutants were similarly defective in dihydroxyacetone phosphate acyltransferase activity. The mutations were recessive and fell into a single complementation group. Tetrad analysis gave results consistent with mutations in a single nuclear gene affecting both activities. sn-Glycerol-3-phosphate… CONTINUE READING
