The aims of the present study are (i) to purify a mitochondrial glyoxalase II to homogeneity for the first time from any organism and (ii) to compare its kinetic properties with those of the cytoplasmic enzyme. Both the cytoplasmic and the mitochondrial glyoxalases II from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which are the products of two distinct genes, GLO2 and GLO4, were purified from yeast and in recombinant form from Escherichia coli. To obtain a higher protein yield (compared to wild-type expression… CONTINUE READING
