The Saccharomyces cerevisiae LYS2 gene, which encodes alpha-aminoadipate reductase, an essential enzyme in the yeast lysine biosynthetic pathway, has been sequenced. A large open reading frame (ORF) has been identified which can specify a 1392-amino acid protein with a deduced Mr of 155,344. A DNA database search using the translated LYS2 ORF as a probe has… CONTINUE READING
