Preceptrol® no
Comments EBY100 (Leu-, Trp-) is BJ5465 and is MATa. It has auxotrophic: ura3-52 (a Ty element insertion with no detectable background reversion frequency), trp1 (an amber point mutation), leu2-delta200, his3-delta200, pep4HIS3, prbd1.6R, can1, GAL. EBY100 has genomic insertion of AGA1 regulated by GAL promoter with a URA3 selectable marker.
Morphology Colonies on YEPD at 30°C after 4 days are butyrous, cream colored, smooth surface and usually flat. Cells are globose, ovoidal or elongate and are usually isolated or in small groups.
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
