Pombe transformations

I'm looking for a high efficiency transformation method for use with the pombe mutant spc1/sty1.

I have tried electroporation, but am aware from previous experience that the transformation efficiency in this strain is around 10% against wild type.

I have also tried lithium acetate, but the 42 degree heat shock tends to kill spc1!!

Does anyone have any ideas or novel transformation protocols?

Kind regards
