- In the present work, a second gene encoding protein disulfide isomerase (PDI2) was cloned and characterized from Schizosaccharomyces pombe, and its regulation was studied. The structural gene encoding PDI2 was amplified from the genomic DNA using PCR, and ligated into the E. coli-yeast shuttle vector pRS316 to generate the recombinant plasmid pYPDI2. The determined DNA sequence carries 2,578 bp and is able to encode a protein of 726 amino acid sequence with CGAC at the putative active site. The fission yeast cells harboring pYPDI2 contained 1.62- and 2.73-fold higher PDI activity than the control yeast cells in exponential and stationary phases, respectively, indicating that the cloned gene is in vivo functioning. The PDI2 mRNA levels in both vector control and pYPDI2-containing yeast cells were found to be significantly higher in the stationary phase than in the exponential phase, suggesting that expression of the PDI2 gene is under stationary control. The yeast cells harboring pYPDI2 showed enhanced survival on minimal media plates containing nitric oxide (NO)-generating sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and no nitrogen. The synthesis of β-galactosidase from the PDI2-lacZ fusion gene was markedly enhanced in the Pap1-positive KP1 cells by SNP and nitrogen starvation. However, the enhancement in the synthesis of β-galactosidase from the PDI2-lacZ fusion gene by SNP and nitrogen starvation appeared to be relatively reduced in the Pap1-negative TP108-3C cells than in the Pap1-positive KP1 cells. The PDI2 mRNA level was elevated by SNP and nitrogen starvation in the Pap1-positive cells but not in the Pap1-negative cells. In brief, the S. pombe PDI2 plays a protective role against nitrosative and nutritional stresses, and is positively regulated by NO and nitrogen starvation in a Pap1-dependent manner. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
