The efficiency of transformation by electroporation has been known to be compromised by strain dependency. A high efficiency protocol is still lacking for distinct two-hybrid yeast strains of diverse genetic features. Here, we used 0.5 M lithium acetate (LiAc) and 50 mM Tris-HCl with 5 mM EDTA (pH 7.5), i.e., fivefold the standard concentrations, and voltage at 1.0 to develop a protocol which, for the first time, is able to effect an average efficiency of 1.84 × 106 transformants/μg DNA for three commonly used yeast strains committed to two-hybrid screening experiments.
