	I am a graduate student at UCLA working on signal transduction through the
pheromone cascade.  I would like to obtain a "HMLalpha MATalpha HMRalpha
leu2 trp1 ura3 his3" strain. Hopefully this strain would not be susceptible
to floculant growth when cultured past log phase in synthetic media.
	We would like this strain for the purpose of studying the mechanism by
which an alpha-specific gene suppresses gpa1 lethality.  We wish to test
the model that the derepression of "a" information from the silent locus is
responsible for the suppression. 
	Thank you for any information and assistance that you can provide.  If you
would like more information, please let me know.
