Previous studies have shown that several mixed-function oxidation (MFO) systems are capable of catalyzing the inactivation of glutamine synthetase (GS) [R.L. Levine, C. N. Oliver, R. M. Fulks, and E. R. Stadtman (1978) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 78, 2120-2124] and a number of the other enzymes [L. Fucci, C. N. Oliver, M. J. Coon, and E. R. Stadtman (1983)(More)
The glutamine synthetase (GS) activity in Escherichia coli is regulated by a bicyclic interconvertible enzyme cascade which involves the cyclic adenylylation (inactivation) and deadenylylation (activation) of GS on the one hand, and the modulation of these processes by the uridylylation and deuridylylation of Shapiro's regulatory protein on the other.
