The gene for cytochrome P450 lanosterol 14alpha-demethylase (14DM) from the yeast Candida tropicalis has been isolated. This was accomplished by screening genomic libraries of strain ATCC750 in E. coli using a DNA fragment containing the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae 14DM gene. Identity of this gene was confirmed by (a) observing a heme binding region common to all P450s after sequencing the 3' portion of the gene, and (b) based upon tests of its expression in strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
