met15 phenotype produces brown colonies when grown on Pb containing media.
This requires two approx. 60nt PCR primers; the 20nts of sequence at the 3' ends of each primer is specific for amplifying the MET15 gene from pRS401, and the 40nts of sequence at the 5' ends matches the genomic sequences flanking the gene of interest.
These same primers can be used to amplify an ADE2 marker gene disruption product from pRS402 (ATCC 87477)
MET15, MET17 and MET25 are synonymous.
pRS401 can be used to generate a gene specific MET15 marker gene disruption cassette for tranformation in gene knockout experiments.
The 20nt PCR primer sequences for generating the MET15 marker from pRS401 are: 5'-CTGTGCGGTATTTCACACCG-3' (left primer) and 5'-AGATTGTACTGAGAGTGCAC-3' (right primer).
