Common yeast strains

van Dijken00 describes the characteristics of many common laboratory strains.

S288C

MATα SUC2 gal2 mal mel flo1 flo8-1 hap1

  • gal2-; does not use galactose anaerobically
  • does not form pseudohyphae
  • ATCC: 204508
  • Mortimer86

AB1380

MATa ura3-52 trp1 lys2-1 ade2-1 can1-100 his5

  • ATCC 204682
  • Burke87

W303-1a

MATa leu2-3,112 trp1-1 can1-100 ura3-1 ade2-1 his3-11,15 ybp1-1

YPH499

MATa ura3-52 lys2-801_amber ade2-101_ochre trp1-Δ63 his1-Δ200 leu2-Δ1

  • derived from S288C
  • contains deletions of most selectable markers
  • retains the promoter for the trp gene, thus homology with that plasmid sequence
  • gal2-; does not use galactose anaerobically
  • ATCC:204679
  • Sikorski89, Sobel99


YPH500

MATα ura3-52 lys2-801_amber ade2-101_ochre trp1-Δ63 his1-Δ200 leu2-Δ1

  • derived from S288C
  • contains deletions of most selectable markers
  • retains the promoter for the trp gene, thus homology with that plasmid sequence
  • gal2-; does not use galactose anaerobically
  • ATCC:204680
  • Sikorski89, Sobel99
