Transformation in yeast: development of a hybrid cloning vector and isolation of the CAN1 gene.


We have constructed a plasmid, YEp13, which when used in conjunction with transformation in yeast is a suitable vector for isolating specific yeast genes. The plasmid consists of pBR322, the LEU2 gene of yeast, and a DNA fragment containing a yeast origin of replication from 2 mu circule. We have demonstrated the utility of this cloning system by isolating the yeast gene encoding the arginine permease, CAN1, from a pool of random yeast DNA fragments inserted into YEp13.
