Catabolite inactivation of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Degradation occurs via the ubiquitin pathway.

Catabolite inactivation of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase), a key enzyme in gluconeogenesis, is due to phosphorylation and subsequent degradation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The degradation process of the enzyme had been shown to depend on the action of the proteasome. Here we report that components of the ubiquitin pathway target FBPase ...
to proteolysis. Upon glucose addition to yeast cells cultured on nonfermentable carbon sources FBPase is ubiquitinated in vivo. A multiubiquitin chain containing isopeptide linkages at Lys48 of ubiquitin is attached to FBPase. Formation of a multiubiquitin chain is a prerequisite for the degradation of FBPase. Catabolite degradation of FBPase is dependent on the ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes Ubc1, Ubc4, and Ubc5. The 26 S proteasome is involved in the degradation process.
