The purification and properties of Escherichia coli methylglyoxal synthase.
1. Methylglyoxal synthase was purified over 1500-fold from glycerol-grown Escherichia coli K 12 strain CA 244. The purified enzyme was inactivated by heat or proteolysis, had a molecular weight ofExpand

Alkylphenol Biotransformations Catalyzed by 4-Ethylphenol Methylenehydroxylase
ABSTRACT 4-Ethylphenol methylenehydroxylase from Pseudomonas putida JD1 acts by dehydrogenation of its substrate to give a quinone methide, which is then hydrated to an alcohol. It was shown to beExpand
