Isolation and characterization of a gene coding for glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

A yeast glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase gene has been isolated from a collection of Escherichia coli transformants containing randomly sheared segments of yeast genomic DNA. Complementary DNA, synthesized from partially purified glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase messenger RNA, was used as a hybridization probe for cloning this gene. The isolated hybrid plasmid DNA has been mapped with restriction endonucleases and the location of the glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase gene within the cloned segment of yeast DNA has been established. There are approximately 4.5 kilobase pairs of DNA sequence flanking either side of the glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase gene in the cloned segment of yeast DNA. The isolated hybrid plasmid DNA has been used to selectively hybridize glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase messenger RNA from unfractionated yeast poly(adenylic acid)-containing messenger RNA. The nucleotide sequence of a portion of the isolated hybrid plasmid DNA has been determined. This nucleotide sequence encodes 29 amino acids which are at the COOH terminus of the known amino acid sequence of yeast glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase.[1]
