In Aspergillus nidulans sulfate is taken up by sulfate permease encoded by the sB gene. A unique tight auxotrophic mutant with an impaired promoter region of the sulfate permease gene, sB1(pr), was isolated. Three suppressor genes were cloned by complementation of this mutation. One of them, described here, is the astA gene (alternative sulfate transporter) derived from a genomic library of the Japanese A. nidulans IAM 2006 strain. In the reference strain of Glasgow origin the astA gene was… CONTINUE READING
