The nucleotide sequence of 23.6 kb of the right arm of chromosome XIV is described, starting from the centromeric region. Both strands were sequenced with an average redundancy of 4.87 per base pair. The overall G+C content is 38.8% (42.5% for putative coding regions versus 29.4% for non-coding regions). Twelve open reading frames (ORFs) greater than 100 amino acids were detected. Codon frequencies of the twelve ORFs agree with codon usage in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and all show the characteristics of low level expressed genes. Five ORFs (N2019, N2029, N2031, N2048 and N2050) are encoded by previously sequenced genes (the mitochondrial citrate synthase gene, FUN34, RPC34, PRP2 and URK1, respectively). ORF N2052 shows the characteristics of a transmembrane protein. Other elements in this region are a tRNA(Pro) gene, a tRNA(Asn) gene, a tau(34) and a truncated delta(34) element. Nucleotide sequence comparison results in relocation of the SISI gene to the left arm of the chromosome as confirmed by colinearity analysis. The nucleotide sequence data reported in this paper will appear in the EMBL, GenBank and DDBJ Nucleotide Sequence Databases under the accession number X77395.
