Characterization and regulation of Schizosaccharomyces pombe gene encoding thioredoxin.


A cDNA coding thioredoxin (TRX) was isolated from a cDNA library of Schizosaccharomyces pombe by colony hybridization. The 438 bp EcoRI fragment, which was detected by Southern hybridization, reveals an open reading frame which encodes a protein of 103 amino acids. The genomic DNA encoding TRX was also isolated from S. pombe chromosomal DNA using PCR. The… (More)
