Heterologous hybridisation was used to isolate a genomic DNA sequence from Phanerochaete chrysosporium using the facA (acetyl CoA synthetase) gene from Aspergillus nidulans as a probe. The cloned sequence hybridises to a 2.2 kb transcript in poly(A)+ RNA prepared from mycelium grown on acetate as the sole carbon source. Comparison of the DNA sequence obtained with those of the A. nidulans facA and N. crassa acu5 genes reveals an ORF that appears to be interrupted by five typical fungal introns. Two possible candidates for the translation initiation codon were observed. Homology with the facA and acu5 genes is revealed after the second ATG codon.
