DNA sequence analysis of ARS elements from chromosome III of Saccharomyces cerevisiae: identification of a new conserved sequence.


Four fragments of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome III DNA which carry ARS elements have been sequenced. Each fragment contains multiple copies of sequences that have at least 10 out of 11 bases of homology to a previously reported 11 bp core consensus sequence. A survey of these new ARS sequences and previously reported sequences revealed the presence of an additional 11 bp conserved element located on the 3' side of the T-rich strand of the core consensus. Subcloning analysis as well as deletion and transposon insertion mutagenesis of ARS fragments support a role for 3' conserved sequence in promoting ARS activity.
