Electrospray mass spectrometry of the purified isoforms of the hypusine-containing protein of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Hyp2p suggested a phosphorylation of the acidic isoform, which was confirmed by phosphatase treatment. The phosphorylation site was mapped to the N-acetylated serine residue in position no. 1 by mass spectrometric analysis of enzymatic fragments. Mutation of this serine residue gives rise to only the basic isoform, confirming our protein chemical data. As this mutation has no effect on cell viability or growth rate, the unphosphorylated isoform is sufficient to exert the essential in vivo function of Hyp2p.
