Abstract

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene, ADE6, encoding 5'-phosphoribosylformyl glycinamidine synthetase (EC 6.3.5.3) has been cloned by complementation of an ade6 auxotroph. Transformation of ade6 mutants with ADE6-carrying centromeric plasmids restored normal, adenine-independent growth behavior in the recipients. Strains containing a disrupted ade6 allele were constructed and behaved as stable adenine auxotrophs. Southern transfer and genetic analyses of strains carrying a disrupted ade6 allele demonstrated that the cloned gene was ADE6 and not a suppressor. The cloned ADE6 DNA was mapped on the RAD2-proximal fragment of chromosome VII by hybridization on yeast chromosomes separated by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Northern-blot hybridization experiments show that the ADE6 region produces two different mRNA species of approx. 5 and 2 kb. Disappearance of the larger, but not the smaller, transcript is associated with ade6 mutations. A threefold repression in the amount of the 5-kb ADE6 mRNA is observed when growth medium is supplemented with exogenous adenine.
