Two Kluyveromyces lactis genes encoding acetyl co-enzyme A synthetase isoenzymes were isolated. One we named KlACS1, as it has high similarity to the ACS1 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The other gene, KlACS2, showed more similarity to S. cerevisiae ACS2 than to KlACS1 or ScACS1. This suggests that divergence of the two isogenes occurred before the evolutionary separation of the species and that the different functions have been conserved. In line with this idea is the regulation of… CONTINUE READING
