In a genetic screen for mutants disturbed in peroxisomal functions we found that the laboratory 'wild type' strain YP102 behaved like a typical peroxisome assembly mutant. Here, we report the sequence of the complementing gene (PAS8), coding for a protein of 1030 amino acids that appears to be a novel member of the AAA-protein family which also includes NSFp and PAS1p. © 1993.
