We have identified five acyl coenzyme A (CoA) oxidase isozymes (Aox1 through Aox5) in the n-alkane-assimilating yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, encoded by the POX1 through POX5 genes. The physiological function of these oxidases has been investigated by gene disruption. Single, double, triple, and quadruple disruptants were constructed. Global Aox activity was(More)
BACKGROUND The cytosol of most eukaryotic cells contains multiple highly conserved Hsp70 orthologs that differ mainly by their spatio-temporal expression patterns. Hsp70s play essential roles in protein folding, transport or degradation, and are major players of cellular quality control processes. However, while several reports suggest that specialized(More)
We describe an unusual mechanism for organelle division. In the yeast Yarrowia lipolytica, only mature peroxisomes contain the complete set of matrix proteins. These mature peroxisomes assemble from several immature peroxisomal vesicles in a multistep pathway. The stepwise import of distinct subsets of matrix proteins into different immature intermediates(More)
The ACO3 gene, which encodes one of the acyl-CoA oxidase isoenzymes, was isolated from the alkane-utilizing yeast Yarrowia lipolytica as a 10 kb genomic fragment. It was sequenced and found to encode a 701-amino acid protein very similar to other ACOs, 67.5% identical to Y. lipolytica Aco1p and about 40% identical to S. cerevisiae Pox1p. Haploid strains(More)
