Abstract

In the course of studying sir4-11 which is responsible for the non-mating phenotype of asd-homothallism of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we detected chromosomal α-specific suppressors of it. By examining the mating-type cassette constitution of two strains and the spore-clones derived from a diploid culture formed by a mass mating between these strains, we obtained the following results; (1) the HMRa-bearing HindIII-BglII restriction fragment was dimorphic, as judged by size, within each tetrad, (2) while one form was common to all tetrads, the other varied among tetrads, (3) spore-clones with the α-specific suppressor of sir4-11 had the variant forms while those without had the common form, and (4) while the two parents had the common form, each independent diploid clone had the common form plus a variant form. From these results, we conclude that the mating of cells in certain combinations induces a change of DNA structure at or near HMRa in a mating-pair specific manner and that the change makes HMRa non-derepressible or non-functional when derepressed.
