Abstract

3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A lyase (HL, E.C. 4.1.3.4) has a unique dual localization in both mitochondria and peroxisomes. Mitochondrial HL (~31.0 kDa) catalyzes the last step of ketogenesis; the function of peroxisomal HL (~33.5 kDa) is unknown. On density gradient fractionation, normal human lymphoblasts contain both peroxisomal and mitochondrial HL whereas in lymphoblasts from a patient with Zellweger syndrome, in which functional peroxisomes are absent, only the mitochondrial HL isoform was present. To study the kinetics of the dual targeting of HL, we performed pulse-chase experiments in normal and Zellweger cells. Pulse-chase studies revealed a biphasic curve for processing of the HL precursor. The first phase, with a calculated half-life of ~3 h in both normal and Zellweger fibroblasts and lymphoblasts and in HepG2 cells, presumably reflects mitochondrial import and processing of the precursor; the second (t(1/2), 12- 19 h) is present only in normal cells and presumably represents the half- life of peroxisomal HL. The half-life of mature mitochondrial HL was 14 to 19 h in both normal and Zellweger cells. Studies of the HMG-CoA lyase precursor in isolated rat mitochondria showed a rate of processing ~2.6-fold lower than that of the ornithine transcarbamylase precursor.
