Abstract

The cDNA encoding sucrose-fructan 6-fructosyltransferase (6-SFT) from barley (Hordeum vulgare) has been expressed in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris, using a translational fusion into vector pPICZ alphaC, containing the N-terminal signal sequence of Saccharomyces cerevisiae alpha-factor to allow entry into the secretory pathway. Transformed Pichia produced and secreted a functional 6-SFT which had characteristics similar to the barley enzyme, but had a pronounced additional 1-SST activity when incubated with sucrose.
