The nmt1+ gene of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe is subject to transcriptional repression mediated by thiamine. The promoter of nmt1+ has been used to construct a series of vectors that are now commonly used for the regulated expression of genes in S. pombe. In this report, we described ntf1+, a gene involved in regulating nmt1+ expression. The ntf1+ gene was cloned in a high copy suppressor screen that utilized a construct, nmt1:wee1+, in which expression of the mitotic inhibitor… CONTINUE READING
