Swap the marker (see YEAST 13: 647=96653, 1997; 20: 985=96993 2003).
Here is an "simple" procedure:
Design primers with sequence identity of the URA3-pYES-DEST region
(for example 60 mer) and a 27-30 mer extension of the new marker (for
PCR using as a template a plasmid carrying LEU2 without homologies
Co-transform a yeast strains deleted in URA3 and LEU2 with PYES-DEST
and the PCR product. Select LEU+ colonies (another option: first
transform the strain with PYES-DEST and then transform the
strain+pYES-DEST with the PCR product.
Retrieve plasmid in E coli.
