Inactivation of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex by 3-bromopyruvate is thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP)-dependent. Inactivation with 2-14C- or 3-14C-labeled 3-bromopyruvate results in TPP-dependent covalent labeling of more than 60 sites in the complex, all of which are associated with the dihydrolipoyl transacetylase component. Inactivation by(More)
We have previously isolated cyclo(L-Pro-L-Tyr) and cyclo(L-Phe-L-Pro) from an actinomycete by a novel enzymatic conversion-guided method. Their tetradehydro derivatives, cyclo(DeltaPro-DeltaTyr) and cyclo(DeltaPhe-DeltaPro), were enzymatically prepared. Neither of them inhibited cell division, in contrast to other tetradehydro cyclic dipeptides prepared(More)
