Within the framework of an international project for the sequencing of the entire genome, this paper communicates the sequencing of a chromosome region containing the and loci (65 kb), which creates a 177 kb contig covering the region from to This 65 kb region contains 64 ORFs (62 complete and two partial genes). The 14th, 15th and 17th genes correspond to and encoding the antiterminator for transcription, β-glucanase (lichenase) and catalase 2, respectively. The 11th, 30th, 36th, 39th, 41st, 45th-48th, 51st and 58th genes are designated and because their products probably encode ATP-dependent RNA helicase, tripeptidase, UDP-glucose-4-epimerase, aldehyde dehydrogenase, multiple sugar-binding transport ATP-binding protein, the respective components of cytochrome ubiquinol oxidase and ATP-binding cassette transporter, s-factor of RNA polymerase and catalase, respectively. The 60th-64th genes are which are probably involved in cellobiose utilization. Gene organization and gene features in the region are discussed.
