Sequencing and functional studies on chromosome I of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

The sequence of each S. cerevisiae chromosome, released in GenBank database, lacked most of the telomere sequence. This was due to the fact that a telomeric fragment with one clonable end cannot be integrated into a vector by the classical cloning method. Recently, Louis and Borts cloned all telomeres of S. cerevisiae successfully using an alternative cloning method (Louis and Borts, 1995). In chapter 3 of this thesis, I report the DNA sequence of the right telomeric region of chromosome I. The sequence indicates that this region represents a typical yeast telomeric region and contains 98bp of TG$ sb{1-3}$ repeats and an X subtelomeric element. Another subtelomeric element, the Y$ sp prime$ element, is absent from the right telomeric region of chromosome I. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
