Does anyone have any experience with increasing 5-FOA dosage for use with S.
cerevisiae? I have a new batch of 5-FOA that seems to be allowing leaky growth
of ura+ cells. It's fairly obvious that they grow much slower than ura- cells
on FOA media (and never really make it up to full size colonies), but the
background is causing some problems with my screening. Has anyone tried FOA at
doses higher than the standard 1 mg/ml?
