Influence of key residues on the heterologous extracellular production of fungal ribonuclease U 2 in the yeast


Ribonuclease U2, secreted by the smut fungus Ustilago sphaerogena, is a cyclizing ribonuclease that displays a rather unusual specificity within the group of microbial extracellular RNases, best represented by RNase T1. Superposition of the three-dimensional structures of RNases T1 and U2 suggests that the RNase U2 His 101 would be the residue equivalent to… (More)
