Coli B. subtilis Pseudomonas sp. 1 Posttranslational Modification in Prokaryotes Even prokaryotes can perform many different posttranslational modifications, though through different mechanisms than eukaryotes. Cleavage of N-terminal signal sequences and acylation, or even the modification of amino acid side-chains, for example, by oxidation can be performed [18–20]. , oxidation of cysteine is even essential for catalytic activity. Since prokaryotic organisms have no endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus, they were generally supposed to perform no glycosylation.

Such enzymes can be expressed in E. coli ‘Origami’ strain, in cells coexpressing helper proteins, such as PDI or DsbC, or they can be directed to the more oxidative periplasm. Periplasmatic expression has even more advantages for protein expression [33]: it also simplifies downstream processing, N-terminal processing and correct folding, and can reduce proteolysis. Also, combinations like chaperone coexpression and export to the periplasm using, for example, the twin-arginine translocation (TAT) secretion system, which is able to secrete folded proteins, can be very successful [34].

Pombe can often recognize leader sequences from humans [91,92] and fungi [93] and also promoters [94] from higher eukaryotes, which often are not functional in S. cerevisiae. The most interesting fact is the ability of S. pombe to recognize introns in RNA of higher eukaryotes and perform their splicing [95]. This could be extremely interesting for 32 Biocatalysis for the Pharmaceutical Industry screening genomic DNA libraries from eukaryotes. Also, its transformation efficiency is generally one order higher than S.
