We have constructed a PRC1-SUC2 gene fusion that directs the synthesis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae of a hybrid polypeptide consisting of a 433-residue amino-terminal domain derived from the yeast vacuolar protease carboxypeptidase Y (CPY; EC and a 511-residue carboxyl-terminal domain derived from the secreted yeast enzyme invertase (EC Fractionation data indicated that this amount of CPY primary sequence is sufficient to quantitatively divert invertase to the yeast vacuole… CONTINUE READING
