The active form of pyruvate formate-lyase (PFL) from Escherichia coli contains a glycyl radical in position 734 of the polypeptide chain which is produced post-translationally by pyruvate(More)
Reaction of oxygen with the glycyl radical in pyruvate formate-lyase (PFL) leads to cleavage of the polypeptide backbone between N-Calpha of Gly734. A recombinant protein comprising the core of PFL(More)
Flavodoxin and ferredoxin become reduced in Escherichia coli cells by oxidoreductase reactions which use pyruvate and NADPH as electron donor substrates. The two enzymes, which are minor proteins of(More)
