Proteasomes are large, multisubunit particles that act as the proteolytic machinery for most of the regulated intracellular protein breakdown in eukaryotic cells. Proteasomes are present in both the nucleus and cytoplasm. When we analyzed the molecular composition of protein constituents of the nuclear matrix preparation of goldfish oocytes by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by sequence analysis, we found a 26 kDa spot identical in amino acid sequence to the β6 subunits of the 20S proteasome. No spot of other subunits of 20S proteasome was detected. Here we describe the cloning, sequencing and expression analysis of Carassius auratus, β6.
