Abstract

In order to examine the primary structure of acetoacetyl-CoA synthetase (acetoacetate-CoA ligase, EC 6.2.1.16; AA-CoA synthetase), the cDNA clone encoding this enzyme has been isolated from the cDNA library which was prepared from the liver of rat fed a diet supplemented with 4% cholestyramine and 0.4% pravastatin for 4 days. Nucleotide sequence analysis of cloned cDNA revealed that AA-CoA synthetase of rat liver contains an open reading frame of 2019 nucleotides, and the deduced amino acid sequence (672 amino acid residues) bears 25.0 and 38.9% homologies with acetyl-CoA synthetases of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Archaeoglobus fulgidus, respectively.
