Abstract

An NADPH-dependent α-keto amide reductase was purified from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The molecular mass of the native enzyme was estimated to be 33 and 36 kDa by gel filtration chromatography and SDS–polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, respectively. The purified enzyme showed a reducing activity not only for aromatic α-keto amides but also for aliphatic and aromatic α-keto esters. The internal sequence of the enzyme was identical with that of a hypothetical protein (ORF YDL 124w) coded by yeast chromosome IV.
