Single dropout formulation ( without L-Leucine) of Complete Supplement Mixture (CSM) of amino acids for S. cerevisiae growth media. Time tested formulation is available in complete and dropout formulations.
The selection of plasmids in yeast is based on the use of auxotrophic mutant strains that cannot grow without a specific media component (an amino acid, purine or pyrimidine). Transformation with a plasmid containing the mutated gene enables the transformant to grow on a medium lacking the required component. This CSM-Dropout medium create a richer medium for better yield and growth rate, and increase the probability of successful transformations when screening libraries or performing gene knock-outs.

|pH||pH Range (with DOB, after autoclave): 4.0 - 4.8 at 25 °C|
|Preparation Method||Reagents are tested and chosen for their ability to promote optimum growth of yeast strains when combined in the DOB or DOBA with CSM or CSM-Dropout formula. DOB (Drop Out Base) is 1.7g Yeast Nitrogen Base, 5g Ammonium Sulfate, 20g Dextrose per liter. DOBA is DOB with 17% agar. Chosen reagents are combined in the proper proportions according to the formulation listed in the certificate of analysis and milled to a powder which thoroughly blends the reagents for uniform distribution. A sample of the milled and blended formulation was used to prepare liquid plate medium by adding 43.7g DOBA powder and 0.79g of CSM or the appropriate weight of CSM-Dropout to a liter of purified water. The combinations were mixed by hand for about 1 minute to dissolve the dextrose and autoclaved at 121 °C for 25 minutes. After cooling to 50 °C plates were poured.|
|Solubility||Soluble in water.|
