1 Molecular biology Transformation: introduction of DNA – Selectable marker – Spheroplasts, Li 2+ salts, electroporation Yeast plasmids are shuttle plasmids, amplification in E. coli, –ori,  -lactamase Transformation with oligonucleotides, -> selection Transformation of mitochondria by particle bombardment

2 Important genes URA3, LYS2, can be negative selected against (FOA,  - aminoadipic acid) –Host alleles, ura3-52 -> ura3∆0 Dominant drug selectable markers, i.e. kanMX ADE1, ADE2, ade1 and ade2 mutants produce a red pigment –But ade3 ade2 is white –Colony sectoring screen –Syntehtic lethal secreen GAL promoter for conditional expression lacZ, GFP fusions Epitope tags

3 (A) The YFG1 +gene is disrupted by transforming the strain with a linear fragment containing a URA3 selectable marker flanked by homologous sequences. The chromosomal segment is replaced by this URA3 containing fragment after integration by homologous recombination. (B) The URA3 marker introduced in the YFG1 locus, can be excised if URA3 is also flanked by direct repeats of DNA, preferably not originating from yeast. Homologous recombinants lack the URA3 marker and retain a single copy of the repeated DNA. (C) Single-step gene replacement of mutant alleles, such as yfg1-1, can be carried out by first replacing the YFG1 gene by URA3, transforming the strain with linear fragment encompassing the yfg1-1 mutation, and selecting transformants in which URA3 is replaced by yfg1-1. Homologous recombination gene disruption

4 Two-step gene replacement

5 4 types of yeast vectors

6 Plasmid shuffling

7 Allele rescue gap repair

8 Interactions of genes Physical interactions, two-hybrid, co-Ips, co-purification... Genetic interactions, synthetic lethal, supression, dominant- negative Intragenic complementation Non-allelic non-complementation Suppressors –Informational, ie tRNAs (are allele but not gene specific) –Metabolic, gene specific, bypass suppressors Synthetic enhancement, epistasis

9 Synthetic enhancement and synthetic lethality

10 Nomenclature of genetic interactions

11 Reverse genetics Gene -> phenotype -> function (annotation)

12 Yeast specific Methods Two hybrid Yeast Artifical Chromosomes (YACs) ( kb) Expression of heterologous proteins –No endotoxins –Posttranslational modifications (acetylation, myristoylation,..) –secretion
