Resumen

La PPCDC es un enzima esencial, clave en la síntesis del Coenzima A. Hemos demostrado que en S. cerevisiae, en contra de lo comúnmente establecido –una flavoproteína homotrimérica-, este enzima existe como un heterotrímero. Uno de los componentes es necesariamente Ykl088w, asociado a combinaciones de Hal3 y/o Vhs3. Sorprendentemente, estas dos últimas proteínas eran conocidas como subunidades reguladoras de una proteína fosfatasa, por lo que este trabajo establece su carácter de proteínas multifuncionales o moonlighting.

REFERENCIA DEL GRUPO Y/O INVESTIGADOR
El Grupo de Biología Molecular de Levaduras se estableció en la UAB a principios de 1990. Su investigación se ha centrado principalmente en el estudio de la respuesta a estrés mediante procesos de fosfo-desfosforilación, con especial énfasis en las Ser/Thr proteína fosfatasas, habiendo descubierto y caracterizado numerosas fosfatasas de diversos organismos. Su modelo de estudio preferente es la levadura Saccharomyces cerevisiae, cuyo genoma contribuyeron a secuenciar por completo.
