Galactose was added to a final concentration of 2% (wt/v) to induce the yeast GAL1 promoter.
To do this, we amplified the KIN3 gene from strain Y2454, cloned the amplification product into a Topo-TA vector, and then directionally cloned into the pYES vector, putting KIN3 under control of the GAL1 promoter.
