We describe a continuous, spectrophotometric, enzyme-coupled assay useful to monitor reactions catalyzed by nucleoside triphosphohydrolases. In particular, using Escherichia coli deoxynucleoside triphosphohydrolase (Dgt), which hydrolyzes dGTP to deoxyguanosine and tripolyphosphate (PPPi) as the enzyme to be tested, we devised a procedure relying on purine(More)
The Escherichia coli dgt gene encodes a dGTP triphosphohydrolase whose detailed role still remains to be determined. Deletion of dgt creates a mutator phenotype, indicating that the dGTPase has a fidelity role, possibly by affecting the cellular dNTP pool. In the present study, we have investigated the structure of the Dgt protein at 3.1-Å resolution. One(More)
