Glucokinase gene (HPGLK1) was cloned from a methylotrophic yeast Hansenula polymorpha by complementation of glucose-phosphorylation deficiency in a H. polymorpha double kinase-negative mutant A31-10 by a genomic library. An open reading frame of 1416 nt encoding a 471-amino-acid protein with calculated molecular weight 51.6 kDa was characterized in the genomic insert of the plasmid pH3. The protein sequence deduced from HPGLK1 exhibited 55 and 46% identity with glucokinases from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Aspergillus niger, respectively. The enzyme phosphorylated glucose, mannose and 2-deoxyglucose, but not fructose. Transformation of HPGLK1 into A31-10 restored glucose repression of alcohol oxidase and catalase in the mutant. Transformation of HPGLK1 into S. cerevisiae triple kinase-negative mutant DFY632 showed that H. polymorpha glucokinase cannot transmit the glucose repression signal in S. CEREVSIAE: synthesis of invertase and maltase in respective transformants was insensitive to glucose repression similarly to S. cerevisiae DFY568 possessing only glucokinase.
