Through the use of a multicopy plasmid and genomic integration vector, new yeast strains with high-level expression of heterologous endo-β-1,4-glucanase of the fungus Aspergillus niger and the Lentinula edodes
cellobiohydrolase CEL7A were obtained. The vector carrying a selective marker gene resistant to geneticin (G418), a constitutive promoter and terminator of yeast gene glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase
(GAPDH) was created for integration of genetic material into the chromosomal HO locus. Approaches used in this study have been shown to be perspective in the development of industrial strains for the fermentation
of cellulose-containing materials.
