Abstract

A 21808 bp nucleotide sequence at 75° on the genetic map of the chromosome was determined. The sequence of this region is adjacent to the operon involved in glycerol utilization. Twenty-six ORFs were identified, one of which corresponds to the gene, encoding a cold-shock protein. Seventeen of the deduced protein sequences of these ORFs displayed significant homology to known proteins in the data banks. One putative operon was identified, consisting of five ORFs, that is probably involved in the uptake and processing of copper. The location of in this sequence does not confirm the genetic mapping data, indicating that the gene is closely linked to which is located at 80° on the chromosome.
