Cloning and expression of a human pro(tea)some beta-subunit cDNA: a homologue of the yeast PRE4-subunit essential for peptidylglutamyl-peptide hydrolase activity.

Abstract
The cDNA encoding a human prosome beta-subunit (HSBpros26) was isolated from a lymphoma library using the cDNA of the Xenopus homologue as a probe. The cDNA contains an open reading frame encoding a protein of 233 amino acids and a calculated molecular weight of 25,909. Comparison with interspecies homologues of HSBpros26 from Xenopus (XLB), rat (RN3) and yeast (PRE4) reveals a high degree of identity between the beta-subunits except for the N-terminal end, which is probably cleaved post-translationally. The complete coding sequence of HSBpros26 has been expressed in E. coli. The produced protein of about 27 kDa reacts with the prosomal monoclonal antibody MCP205, kindly provided by Dr. K. Hendil. The molecular weight of the native protein is about 28 kDa indicating that the protein is present as monomers. Finally partially purified HSBpros26 preparations do not contain any proteolytical activity.
