A mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae deficient in arginyl-tRNA-protein transferase has been isolated. The responsible mutation designated ate1, was localized near the centromere of chromosome VII. It probably involves the structural gene for the transferase since residual enzyme activity in the mutant is temperature-sensitive.
