Abstract: We have investigated the significance of the chromosomal replication origin, ARS1, during the entire life cycle of yeast. This was done by substituting the chromosomal copy with a series of ars1 deletion mutants. It was shown that the ARS1 replication origin is not essential for mitotic or premeiotic DNA replication since no effect on growth, chromosomal loss rate and spore viability was observed in the ars1 mutant strains. We conclude that replication origins are abundantly, present in the yeast genome and that the removal of a single replication origin is compensated for by replication forks emanating from neighbouring origins.
