    Notes: Summary To learn more about the variety of Ty elements capable of activating gene expression, we characterized 206 spontaneous Ty transpositions that activate the promoterless gene his3Δ4. Most of the Ty elements appear to be full-length, although a few deleted elements were recovered. Over 95% of the insertions belong to the Ty1 family, and the rest are Ty2 elements. The excessive number of Ty1 transpositions was unexpected because there are only 2-fold more Ty1 than Ty2 elements in the yeast strains used in the selection. However, there is 20-fold more Ty1 than Ty2 RNA present in these yeast strains. This difference in RNA level explains the greater number of Ty1 verses Ty2 transpositions at his3Δ4, because Ty elements transpose through an RNA intermediate. A similar association between the Ty transcript level and transpositional activation of his3Δ4 is obtained in cells expressing GAL1-promoted Ty2-H556 or Ty2-917 elements, but only if the element does not contain a marker. Genetically marked Ty2-H556NEO and-917NEO elements transpose into and activate his3Δ4 with the same efficiency as the previously characterized Ty1H3NEO element, but are underrepresented relative to the levels of TyNEO transcript. We also found that chromosomal Ty transcripts are even more abundant than previously estimated and comprise about 1% of total cellular RNA.

    Notes: A set of yeast strains based on Saccharomyces cerevisiae S288C in which commonly used selectable marker genes are deleted by design based on the yeast genome sequence has been constructed and analysed. These strains minimize or eliminate the homology to the corresponding marker genes in commonly used vectors without significantly affecting adjacent gene expression. Because the homology between commonly used auxotrophic marker gene segments and genomic sequences has been largely or completely abolished, these strains will also reduce plasmid integration events which can interfere with a wide variety of molecular genetic applications. We also report the construction of new members of the pRS400 series of vectors, containing the kanMX, ADE2 and MET15 genes. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
