Abstract

In this report we show that recombinant Saccharomyces cerevisiae Fms1 protein is a polyamine oxidase that binds FAD with an FAD:Fms1 stoichiometry of 1:1. Biochemical characterization of Fms1 shows that it can oxidize spermine, N(1)-acetylspermine, N(1)-acetylspermidine, and N(8)-acetylspermidine, but not spermidine. The products of spermine oxidation are spermidine and 3-aminopropanal. A kinetic analysis revealed that spermine, N(1)-acetylspermine, and N(1)-acetylspermidine are oxidized with similar efficiencies, while N(8)-acetylspermidine is a poor substrate. The data support a previous report, suggesting that Fms1 is responsible for the production of beta-alanine from spermine for the synthesis of pantothenic acid.
