Molecular cloning of cDNA for antimycin A-inducible mRNA and its role in cyanide-resistant respiration in Hansenula anomala.

  • 1Department of Biochemistry, Niigata College of Pharmacy, Japan.


A cDNA for mRNA induced by antimycin A in Hansenula anomala was cloned. The mRNA for the cDNA was expressed in the yeast under the conditions expressing the cyanide-resistant respiration activity. The nucleotide sequence revealed a long open reading frame of 342 codons encoding a protein with a molecular weight of 40,282 in the cDNA. An antibody recognizing the protein encoded by the open reading frame was produced. Immunoblotting of H. anomala proteins with this antibody showed that a 36 kDa protein localized in mitochondria was a mature form of the protein encoded by the cDNA. It is suggested that the cloned cDNA encodes a protein involved in the cyanide-resistant respiratory pathway.
