Abstract


The coding region of the CCT gene from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae was cloned into the pUC18 expression vector. The plasmid directed the synthesis of an active cholinephosphate cytidylyltransferase in Escherichia coli, confirming that CCT is the structural gene for this enzyme. The enzyme produced in E. coli efficiently utilized cholinephosphate and N,N-dimethylethanolaminephosphate, but N-methylethanolamine-phosphate and ethanolaminephosphate were poor substrates. Consistently, disruption of the CCT locus in the wild-type yeast cells resulted in a drastic decrease in activities with respect to the former two substrates. When activity was expressed in E. coli, over 90% was recovered in the cytosol, whereas most of the activity of yeast cells was associated with membranes, suggesting that yeast cells possessa mechanism that promotes membrane association of cytidylyltransferase.
