Five different DNA sequences of Phanerochaete chrysosporium capable of supporting autonomous replication of yeast integration plasmid (YIp5) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae were isolated. These hybrid plasmids with the autonomous replication sequences from P. chrysosporium are maintained extrachromosomally, are mitotically unstable and transform Ura3 deletion mutant of S. cerevisiae to Ura+ phenotype with high frequency. The autonomous replication sequence in pRR2, one of the recombinant plasmids, was further characterized and was shown to be homologous to P. chrysosporium genomic DNA. Restriction analyses showed that this plasmid has unique PvuII and SalI restriction sites for cloning.
