Preceptrol® no
Comments YVH10 (Ura-, Trp-) is BJ5464 and is MAT-alpha. The other markers are: ura3-52 (a Ty element insertion with no detectable background reversion frequency), trp1 (an amber point mutation), leu2-delta200, his3-delta200, pep4:HIS3, prbd1.6R, can1, GAL. YVH10 has the yeast PDI gene integrated in tandem with the endogenous copy and is under the constitutive glyceraldehydes (GADPH) promoter with Leu2 as a selectable marker.
Morphology On YM medium at 30°C for 2 days, colonies creamy white to dingy white, butyrous, smooth, slightly raised, margin entire. Cells globose to subglobose, hyaline, smooth, contain oil droplets, 4-6 X 3-5 µm. Pseudohyphae not observed.
Sequenced Data
18S ribosomal RNA gene, partial sequence; internal transcribed spacer 1, 5.8S ribosomal RNA gene, and internal transcribed spacer 2, complete sequence; and 26S ribosomal RNA gene, partial sequence


D1D2 region of the 26S ribosomal RNA gene
