2-(Adenin-9-yl)ethanesulfonic acid (1), 3-(adenin-9-yl)propanesulfonic acid (2), 9-(5-deoxy-beta-D-ribofuranosyl)-adenine-5'-sulfonic acid (3), and 9-(3-deoxy-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl)adenine-3'-sulfonic acid (4) were prepared by reaction of the corresponding chlorides by sodium sulfite (1-3) or by reaction of an epoxide with sodium hydrogen sulfite (4).(More)
Kinetic investigations employing the substrate analogues 2-oxoglutarate and phospho(enol)pyruvate indicate that the allosteric L-lactate dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.27) of Lactobacillus casei has a non-catalytic pyruvate-binding site to which, in addition to pyruvate, the allosteric effector fructose 1,6-bisphosphate can also be found. A modification using the(More)
Kinetic analysis of the in vitro reconstitution of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase [D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (phosphorylating), EC 1.2.1.12] from yeast showed that both oxidized and reduced coenzyme enhance the transconformation reaction, which is rate limiting in the sequential folding-association process at high enzyme(More)
The primary structure of the mitochondrial form of horse liver aldehyde dehydrogenase has been determined, utilizing peptide analyses and homology with other enzyme forms. The subunit exhibits N-terminal heterogeneity in size similar to that for the corresponding human mitochondrial protein, the longest form having 500 residues. Catalase was identified as a(More)
4-(3-Bromoacetylpyridinio)butyldiphosphoadenosine was synthesized with a [carbonyl-14C]acetyl label. The reactive coenzyme analogue inactivates alcohol dehydrogenase from Bacillus stearothermophilus by forming a covalent enzyme-coenzyme compound. The inactivation kinetics as well as the spectral properties of the modified enzyme after treatment with sodium(More)
Reactive coenzyme analogues omega-(3-diazoniumpyridinium)alkyl adenosine diphosphate were prepared by reaction of omega-(3-aminopyridinium)alkyl adenosine diphosphate with nitrous acid. In these compounds the nicotinamide ribose is substituted by hydrocarbon chains of varied lengths (n-ethyl to n-pentyl). The diazonium compounds are very unstable and(More)
