5-Fluoroorotic Acid (5-fluorouracil-6-carboxylic acid monohydrate; 5-FOA) is used in yeast molecular genetics to detect expression of the URA3 gene, which encodes orotine-5'-monophosphate (OMP) dicarboxylase.

Detailní popis

The Thermo Scientific 5-Fluoroorotic Acid is a yeast with an active URA3 gene (Ura+) converts 5-FOA to fluorodeoxyuridine, which is toxic to cells (see the scheme below). Yeast strains carrying a mutation in the URA3 gene grow in the presence of 5-FOA if the media is supplemented with uracil. 5-FOA is frequently used in experiments with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (URA3), Schizosaccharomyces pombe (URA4 and URA5), Candida albicans (URA3), and E. coli (pyrF).


  • Detection of URA3 gene expression in yeast
  • Construction of yeast 2-hybrid libraries (see Reference 1)
  • Other areas of yeast genetics including gene replacement, analysis of transposable genetic elements, and identification of gene mutations (see​ Reference 2)
