PAS genes are required for peroxisome biogenesis in the yeast S. cerevisiae. Here we describe the cloning, sequencing, and characterization of the PAS1 gene. Its gene product, Pas1p, has been identified as a rather hydrophilic 117 kd polypeptide. The predicted Pas1p sequence contains two putative ATP-binding sites and reveals a structural relationship to(More)
The gene encoding the multifunctional protein (MFP) of peroxisomal beta-oxidation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was isolated from a genomic library via functional complementation of a fox2 mutant strain. The open reading frame consists of 2700 base pairs encoding a protein of 900 amino acids. The predicted molecular weight (98,759) is in close agreement with(More)
The yeast gene, GRC5 (growth control), is a member of the highly conserved QM gene family, the human member of which has been associated with the suppression of Wilms' tumor. GRC5 encodes ribosomal protein L10, which is thought to play a regulatory role in the translational control of gene expression. A revertant screen identified four spontaneous(More)
We isolated the first membrane-bound type 2C serine/threonine protein phosphatase from the ciliated protozoan Paramecium tetraurelia (PtPP2C). Three isozymes of 33, 32, and 31 kDa with a specific activity of 1 mumol.min-1.mg1 were purified from the ciliary membrane. All enzymatic properties including (a) insensitivity toward inhibitors of other protein(More)
In order to investigate the mechanisms of peroxisome biogenesis and to identify components of the peroxisomal import machinery we studied these processes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The forward genetic approach has led to pas-mutants (peroxisomal assembly) which fall into 12 complementation groups and allowed to identify 10 of the corresponding(More)
Human peroxisome biogenesis disorders (PBDs) are a group of genetically heterogeneous autosomal-recessive disease caused by mutations in PEX genes that encode peroxins, proteins required for peroxisome biogenesis. These lethal diseases include Zellweger syndrome (ZS), neonatal adrenoleukodystrophy (NALD) and infantile Refsum's disease (IRD), three(More)
We present the molecular cloning and sequencing of genomic and cDNA clones of the fox-2 gene of Neurospora crassa, encoding the multifunctional beta-oxidation protein (MFP). The coding region of the fox-2 gene is interrupted by three introns, one of which appears to be inefficiently spliced out. The encoded protein comprises 894 amino acid residues and(More)
