Sequence analysis of the URA1 gene encoding orotidine-5'-monophosphate decarboxylase of Schizophyllum commune.


The URA1 gene (encoding orotidine-5'-monophosphate decarboxylase) of the basidiomycete fungus Schizophyllum commune was mapped to a 1.4-kb BglI-BamHI fragment of two independent phage lambda clones previously isolated from a Schizophyllum genomic library. The fragment was identified by its ability to complement Schizophyllum ura1 mutants via transformation… (More)
