 Title    Purification and Properties of a Catechol Methyltransferase of the Yeast Candida tropicalis  
 Abstract    In an effort to investigate catechol methyltransferase activity in sources other than mam m alian tissues and cells, a high level o f enzyme activity was found in the yeast fungus Candida tropicalis CBS 94. Partial purification o f the enzyme (approx. 550 fold with a recovery o f 7%) could be achieved by using ion-exchange and gel filtration techniques. The molecular w eight was estimated at 32,000 ± 2,000 by gel filtration on Sephadex G-100. In isoelectric focusing experiments on Sephadex G-75 the enzym e exhibited a pl-value o f 5.0 ± 0.1. In contrast to catechol methyltransfer­ ase from various m am m alian tissues the enzyme activity was prepared from the pH 5-sediment. The substrate specifity is com parable to other catechol methyltransferases.
