A detailed and systematic transcript map is a first and necessary step to characterize new genes revealed by systematic sequencing. Chromosome XI of Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains 331 open reading frames (ORFs) of which 44% are of unknown function (Dujon et al., 1994). As a first study towards complete transcript analysis of chromosome XI, we have extracted RNA from three isogenic strains (a, alpha and 2n) grown in three standard laboratory media, and have analysed them using contiguous probes covering two regions of 17 and 19 kilobases, respectively. All 20 predicted ORFs in the sequences correspond to expressed genes, six of which have no predicted function. Four short ORFs which were suspected as not being real genes on the basis of their sequence are not expressed in our growth conditions. An additional transcript which does not correspond to a large ORF was found. Steady-state RNA level of most ORFs is 10 to 100 times than that of the actin gene, only three are transcribed in comparable amounts. Three ORFs show variable levels of transcripts in the different growth conditions, all patterns being different from one another. Extrapolation of these results to systematic transcript analysis of chromosome XI and other yeast chromosomes is presented.
