Complementation of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae srb1-1 mutation: an autoselection system for stable plasmid maintenance.

The autonomously replicating plasmid YEpSS1, containing the S. cerevisiae SOD1 and SRB1 genes, was highly unstable in a wild-type strain. When transformed into a fragile srb1-1 mutant host, the same plasmid displayed different characteristics depending on the growth medium used. Both batch and continuous culture experiments demonstrated that the plasmid was very unstable when the transformed strain SLU15 was grown in the presence of an osmotic stabiliser (10% w/v sorbitol). However, in the absence of the osmoticum, nearly 100% of the cells retained the plasmid and produced the Sod1 protein after 80 generations of growth.[1]
