The present paper is concerned with the purification and properties of alginase and with further documentation on the identity of the reaction products. Expand
[21] Enzymes of glucuronic and galacturonic acid metabolism in bacteria
Publisher Summary This chapter describes a new metabolic pathway whereby glucuronic and galacturonic acids are isomerized to form their corresponding keto analogs, fructuronic and tagaturonic acids,Expand
Uronic acid metabolism in bacteria. IV. Purification and properties of 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-gluconokinase in Escherichia coli.
The present report is concerned with the purification and properties of the enzyme 2-keto-3-deoxygluconokinase which catalyzes the phosphorylation of 2- keto- 3- deoxy-n- gluconic acid. Expand
Estimation of 3-Deoxy Sugars by Means of the Malonaldehyde–Thiobarbituric Acid Reaction
DURING the course of our investigations on the biosynthesis of 3,6-dideoxy-hexoses, found in the endotoxins of Salmonella and Escherichia1–3 and in the eggs of Parascaris equorum4, the need arose forExpand
Enzymatic formation of xylulose 5-phosphate from ribose 5-phosphate in spleen.
This paper purifies an enzyme from D-xylose-adapted cells of L. pentosus which converts Ru5P to Xu5P, and has named it phosphoketopentoepimerases (epimerase). Expand
