Mating Type Region

The S. pombe mating type region is located on Chromosome 2 (for 972 h-, the coordinates are II:2129208-2137121). This sequence represents a version of the mat2P-mat3M region in which mat2P and
the cenH element are deleted.

A contig of the the h90 configuration of the mat2P-mat3M region was created by Xavier Marsellach and Lorena Aguilar (Azorín lab) using available data and S. kambucha as a scaffold. The contig can be viewed in the Ensembl genome browser. Replacing the Chromosome 2 region spanning coordinates 2129208-2137121 with the separate contig sequence yields the Chromosome 2 contig of an h90 strain.
