Import of fructose bisphosphate aldolase into the glycosomes of Trypanosoma brucei

Abstract

The glycolytic enzymes of Trypanosomatids are compartmentalized within peroxisome-like microbodies called glycosomes. Fructose bisphosphate aldolase is synthesized on free polysomes and imported into glycosomes within 5 min. Peptide mapping reveals no primary structural differences between the in vivo-synthesized protein and that made in vitro from a… (More)
