Abstract

We have employed cDNA cloning to deduce the complete primary structures of p44.5 and p55, two subunits of PA700, a 700-kDa multisubunit regulatory complex of the human 26S proteasome. These polypeptides consist of 422 and 456 amino acids with calculated molecular masses of 47,463 and 52,903, and isoelectric points of 6.06 and 7.56, respectively. Computer-assisted homology analysis revealed high sequence similarities of p44.5 and p55 with yeast proteins whose functions are yet unknown. Disruption of the yeast genes, termed NAS4 and NAS5 (non-ATPase subunits 4 and 5), resulted in lethality, indicating that each of the two subunits is essential for proliferation of yeast cells.
