Abstract


In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, pyruvate carboxylase [EC 6.4.1.1] has an important anaplerotic role in the production of oxaloacetate from pyruvate. We report here the existence of two pyruvate carboxylase isozymes, which are encoded by separate genes within the yeast genome. Null mutants were constructed by one step gene disruption of the characterised PYC gene in the yeast genome. The mutants were found to have 10-20% residual pyruvate carboxylase activity, which was attributable toa protein of identical size and immunogenically related to pyruvate carboxylase. Immunocytochemical labelling studies on ultrathin sections of embedded whole cells from the null mutants showed the isozyme to be located exclusively in the cytoplasm. We have mapped the genes encoding both enzymes and shown the previously characterised gene, designated PYC1, to be on chromosome VII whilst PYC2 is on chromosome II.
