Some of the ade2 alleles used as markers can be found in the table of
Commonly Used Auxotrophic Markers at SGD (although it doesn't have a
reference for the exact sequence of the ade2-101 allele). The URL is

To find in vitro assays, you could try searching PubMed for the enzymes
SAICAR synthase (Ade1p) and AIR carboxylase (Ade2p). The PubMed URL is

I hope this helps.
