Thermal denaturation and aggregation of rabbit muscle glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) have been studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and analytical ultracentrifugation. The maximum of the protein thermal transition (T(m)) increased with increasing the protein concentration, suggesting that(More)
The colorimetric procedure of Bradford (M.M. Bradford, 1976, Anal. Biochem. 72, 248-254) was found to be convenient for determining the content of a protein immobilized on Sepharose. Being simple, sensitive, and rapid, this method appears very useful in studies involving multiple analyses of immobilized protein species present at low concentrations.
Modification of a single arginine residue per subunit of rabbit muscle tetrameric D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase by 2,3-butanedione converts the enzyme into the form which retains 5-7% of the original activity and manifests cooperative properties that are absent in the native enzyme. It exhibits half-of-the-sites reactivity towards the natural(More)
The kinetics of thermal aggregation of glycogen phosphorylase b and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase from rabbit skeletal muscles were studied using dynamic light scattering. Use of high concentrations of the enzymes (1-3 mg/ml) provided a simultaneous registration of the native enzyme forms and protein aggregates. It was shown that initially(More)
The study of thermal denaturation of rabbit muscle glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) in the presence of alpha-crystallin by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) showed that the position of the maximum on the DSC profile (T(max)) was shifted toward lower temperatures with increasing alpha-crystallin concentration. The diminishing GAPDH(More)
Effects of alpha-crystallin and GroEL on the kinetics of thermal aggregation of rabbit muscle glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) have been studied using dynamic light scattering and analytical ultracentrifugation. The analysis of the initial parts of the dependences of the hydrodynamic radius of protein aggregates on time shows that in the(More)
An aggregation test system based on the aggregation of UV-irradiated glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) from rabbit skeletal muscle has been proposed. On the basis of the measurements of the enzyme activity and differential scanning calorimetry data a conclusion has been made that UV radiation results in formation of damaged protein molecules(More)
To search for agents affecting thermal stability of proteins, a test based on the registration of protein aggregation in the regime of heating with a constant rate was used. The initial parts of the dependences of the light scattering intensity (I) on temperature (T) were analyzed using the following empiric equation: I = K(agg)(T-T(0))(2), where K(agg) is(More)
The rate of hydrolysis of 3-phosphoglyceroyl-holoenzyme, a covalent intermediate of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase catalyzed reaction, is considerably decreased in the presence of micromolar concentrations of reduced glutathione, cysteine or dithiothreitol with Ki values of 0.78 microM, 0.6 microM and 10 microM, respectively. The maximal effect is(More)
