The yeast nuclear gene PET111 is required specifically for translation of the mitochondrion-coded mRNA for cytochrome c oxidase subunit II. We have determined the nucleotide sequence of a 3-kilobase segment of DNA that carries PET111. The sequence contains a single long open reading frame that predicts a basic protein of 718 amino acids. The PET111 gene… CONTINUE READING
