Summary

The expression of a LEU gene from Candida maltosa (designated as C-LEU2) isolated previously (Kawamura et al. 1983) was shown to be regulated, when transferred into Saccharomyces cerevisiae, by leucine and threonine in the medium, as in the case of LEU2 gene of S. cerevisiae. The coding region together with the regulatory region was subcloned and the nucleotide sequence was determined. When the sequence of the coding region was compared with that of LEU2, the homology was 72% for base pairs and 76% for deduced amino acids. Comparison of the regulatory region of CLEU2 with those of LEU1 and LEU2 suggested a few short consensus sequences which are involved in regulation of gene expression by leucine and threonine in the medium.
