Abstract

Different targeting sequences derived from the Arxula adeninivorans and Hansenula polymorpha rDNA clusters were tested in A. adeninivorans integration/expression vectors. For element identification, the rDNA unit of A. adeninivorans (accession number Z50840) was first isolated and characterized in addition to the known H. polymorpha unit. The rDNA is a cluster of some forty 7653-bp units without the 5S rDNA gene. The selected elements were integrated into a set of A. adeninivorans expression/integration vectors harbouring a TEF1 promoter - amyA ORF - PHO5 terminator sequence as reporter gene. No differences in mitotic stability, copy number and transformation frequency were observed. All transformants harboured a single copy integrated into the rDNA by a homologous recombination. In contrast, the choice of the rDNA targeting sequence was found to be of impact on productivity. Use of ETS-18S-5.8S fragments from both organisms resulted in a more than 50% increase in comparison to the use of other elements, independent of the orientation within the vector. © 2005 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
