Sequencing of a 40.5 kb fragment located on the left arm of chromosome VII from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The nucleotide sequence of a 40.5 kb DNA fragment from the left arm of chromosome VII of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was determined and analysed. Twenty-eight open reading frames (ORFs) longer than 300 nucleotides were identified. Eight of the them correspond to the following known yeast genes: EMP24, GCN1, SPO8, COX13, CDC55, RPS26, COX4 and LSR1, also called GTS1. Twelve ORFs are new, among them eight show homology with other genes while four have no homology with any sequence in the databases. Eight additional ORFs are internal to or partially overlapping with other ORFs.
