Patterns of polymorphism and divergence in stress-related yeast proteins.

Abstract

Yeast genomes contain variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs) within coding regions of DNA. A significant number of these genes are involved in cell rescue, defence and virulence and are regulated by genetic elements associated with stress. Alleles that encode variable length, single amino acid tracts, are mainly associated with transcription and proteins… (More)
