Abstract: We have carried out the systematic disruption of six ORFs on chromosome XV, of Saccharomyces cerevisiae using the long flanking homology technique to replace each with the KanMX cassette; we have also constructed plasmids containing replacement cassettes and cognate clones for each ORF. Disruption of three of the ORFs-YOL117w, YOL114c, and YOL112w (also known as MSB4)-does not result in any noteworthy phenotype with respect to temperature or nutritional requirements, but yol112w mutants with an additional disruption of YNL293w, which encodes a protein similar to Yol112w, exhibit a slow growth phenotype. The protein specified by YOL114c shares similarity with the human DS-1 protein. Disruption of YOL115w confers slow growth, cold sensitivity and poor sporulation; this ORF has been described elsewhere as TRF4, which encodes a topoisomerase I-related protein. Cells with disruptions of YOL111c, whose product is weakly similar to the human ubiquitin-like protein GdX, are slightly impaired in mating. Mutants disrupted for YOL072w, the predicted product of which is unrelated to any protein of known function, grow slowly, are cold-sensitive and sporulate with reduced efficiency.
