The complete nucleotide sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome VI (270 kb) has revealed that it contains 129 predicted or known genes (300 bp or longer). Thirty-seven (28%) of which have been identified previously. Among the 92 novel genes, 39 are highly homologous to previously identified genes. Local sequence motifs were compared to active ARS regions and inactive loci with perfect ARS core sequences to examine the relationship between these motifs and ARS activity. Additional ARS sequences were predominantly observed in 3' flanking sequences of active ARS loci.
