|Issue Date:||2000||Citation:||Ngan, W.Y., Nga, B.H., Tan, H.M., Pridmore, D., Mollet, B. (2000). Transformation of Endomyces fibuliger based on its gene for orotidine- 5'-phosphate decarboxylase.

It secretes enzymes such as glucoamylase, α-amylase and acid protease. Very little is known of the genetics of E. fibuliger. In order to develop a transformation system for this yeast, orotidine-5'-phosphate decarboxylase mutant strains were obtained and characterized. Transformation of the E. fibuliger ura3 mutant F1 with an integrative plasmid that carried the wild- type URA3 gene of E. fibuliger gave complementation of this mutation. The E. fibuliger gene encodes the orotidine-5'-phosphate decarboxylase enzyme consisting of 266 amino acid residues with a 69.4% sequence identity with orotidine-5'-phosphate decarboxylase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Our finding that E. fibuliger URA3 complements the ura3 mutation in S. cerevisiae confirms that the URA3 gene of E. fibuliger encodes a protein that exerts a similar function.
