LacI-mediated Achilles' cleavage (AC) is a method for selective fragmentation of chromosomes at special lac operator sites introduced by gene targeting methods [Koob and Szybalski, Science 250 (1990) 271-273]. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae APA1 gene, coding for diadenosine 5′, 5‴-P1, P4-tetraphosphate phosphorylase I, has previously been shown to be located on chromosome III [Kaushal et al., Gene 95 (1990) 79-84]. We have now used the AC method to map APA1 gene to a site 44 kb from the left terminus of the chromosome, between the HIS4 and HML genes. This location was confirmed by the comparison of restriction maps of the APA1 gene region to published restriction maps of chromosome III.
