CommentsIt is a progeny of conjugants of AAK02.7 X AAKO5.5 transformed with pA443 derived from pTUB100E3-PvuII (linearized) where the ATU1 gene is marked with Hae III and Pvu II sites and E443A.

The strain was supposed to be pm-r, but the thawed line is pm-s.

From the Gorovsky lab, University of Rochester.
