We have isolated a gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae that encodes a protein homologous to the mammalian cysteine proteinase bleomycin hydrolase. Sequence comparison between the yeast and rabbit proteins indicates an amino acid identity of 41.5% over 277 residues and a similarity of 78.3% when conservative substitutions are included. The apparent mass of the yeast protein by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is 47 kDa, although sequence analysis indicates two potential… CONTINUE READING
