Help - Y187 Saccharomyces Yeast!!

Hello there,

I was wondering if anyone has transformed into Y187 (Mat-alpha) from
Clontech. I have tried a couple of times without success. The yeast
seems to grow very slowly. For example, an overnight inoculation (2-3
colonies) in YPD which generally give a very turbid culture with SFY526
of HF7c will not give equivalent turbidity until the second day (ie: 2
nights). Clontech tech support did tell me that it is slow growing but
this is slow!!!

I planned to do mating experiments using transformed SFY526 or HF7c and
Y187 transformants. Does anyone have any experience with this?? I am a
newbie with Yeast stuff so please excuse the ignorance. Any help would
be greatly appreciated.  Feel free to email me directly if you have
time. Thanks again in advance.
