Polypeptide were exracted from the culture supernatants of Neurospora crassa growing in a variety of media. The polypeptides were analyzed by quantitative SDS-PAGE and the single polypeptide produced in the largest amount under the conditions tested was of molecular weight 69,000 and was referred to as p69. Synthesis of p69 was induced by starch and maltose, and studies on a partially purified preparation established that it was a glucoamylase. The sequence of the N-terminal 30 amino acids of p69 showed that this was related to sequence of analyses from Aspergillus spp. A synthetic oligonucleotide probe was synthesized and used to search for the corresponding gene(s) in Neurospora. A unique region was identified and mapped in a clone from a genomic library. The implications of the work for the development of Neurospora export and expression systems are discussed. © 1989.
