Abstract


Endo.SceI of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a heterodimeric site-specific endonuclease, which is distinguishable from prokaryotic restriction endonucleases in the mode of recognition of its cleavage site. We have used monoclonal antibodies specific to the larger subunit (75 kDa) of Endo.SceI to isolate the gene for the subunit (ENS1) from S. cerevisiae. Unexpectedly, ENS1 was found to encode a 70-kDa heat shock protein-related polypeptide and to be identical to recently cloned SSC1. Subcellular fractionation experiments on yeast cells revealed that the primary target site of the larger subunit is mitochondria, where almost all the Endo.SceI activity is localized. Molecular genetic analysis of ENS1 demonstrated its indispensability for growth and the requirement of a high level of its expression at the sporulation and germination stages. The data suggest that ENS1 plays an important role, especially at these differentiation stages.
