Abstract

This study investigated the subcellular localization of key enzymes of the glyoxylate cycle, i.e. isocitrate lyase (ICL; EC 4.1.3.1) and malate synthase (EC 2.3.3.9), that function constitutively in coordination with oxalate biosynthesis of glucose-grown . The ICL purified previously from is termed FPICL1. Subcellular fractionation analysis of the cell homogenate by the sucrose density-gradient method showed that both key enzymes were present in peroxisomes, whereas acetyl-CoA synthase (EC 6.2.1.1) and oxalate-producing oxaloacetate acetylhydrolase (EC 3.7.1.1) were cytosolic. The peroxisomal localization of FPICL1 was further confirmed by electron microscopic and immunocytochemical analysis with anti-FPICL1 antibody. In addition, the peroxisomal target signal, composed of SKL at the C terminus of the cDNA encoding FPICL1, was found, which also suggests that FPICL1 is peroxisomal. Accordingly, it is postulated that transportation of succinate from peroxisomes to mitochondria, and vice versa, for the transportation of isocitrate or citrate, occurs in glucose-grown for the constitutive metabolic coordination of the TCA and glyoxylate cycles with oxalate biosynthesis.
