Yeast as an alternative expression system

Dear netters,
I have a big protein to express (aprrox. 150kDa). The E. coli GST 
expression system is prone to breakdown of large proteins and has the 
disadvantage of not being post-translationally modified. Have 
anyone tried the GST-expression system in yeast? It seems to combine the 
benefits of a quickie job (unlike baculovirus) and the production of 
a translationally modified protein.
Any suggestions welcome!
