Structure and Expression of Yeast Glycolytic Genes
Yeast glycolytic enzymes are present at high intracellular concentration and comprise 25–65% of the soluble cellular protein (1). The properties of the isolated enzymes have been studied extensively and in some cases the primary structure of the enzymes has been determined as has the three dimensional structure. The intracellular concentration of many glycolytic enzymes increase when cells are shifted from growth on a nonfermentable carbon source to growth on glucose. The kinetics of this increase in enzyme specific activity has been studied and the data suggest that expression of the glycolytic genes may be coordinated (2,3). Coordinate expression of glycolytic genes is also suggested by the phenotype of a mutant yeast strain which fails to synthesize most if not all of the glycolytic enzymes (4).
