In the previous study, we have obtained high ethyl caproate producing Sake yeasts No.227 and No.1333 by carbon-ion irradiation. In this study, to identify the mutation sites of the mutant strains, the specific region (226 bp; nucleotide positions 3,642-3,867) in the fatty acid synthase gene ${it FAS2}$ that might be involved in the higher production of ethyl caproate was sequenced and compared with the corresponding sequence in the parental strain Kyokai-901. Consequently, strains No.227 and No.1333 carried G/A and A/C mutations, respectively, at nucleotide position 3,748 as a heterozygous state. This result strongly suggested that the higher production of ethyl caproate in strains No.227 and No.1333 is attributed to a dominant mutation in ${it FAS2}$ gene.
