The attenuation of the sulfite:cytochrome c activity of sulfite oxidase upon treatment with ferricyanide was demonstrated to be the result of oxidation of the pterin ring of the molybdenum cofactor in the enzyme. Oxidation of molybdopterin (MPT) was detected in several ways. Ferricyanide treatment not only abolished the ability of sulfite oxidase to serve(More)
The complete primary structures of two distinct rabbit alpha-class glutathione S-transferase (GST) subunits, rbGST alpha I and rbGST alpha II, have been derived from cDNA sequences. Clones encoding rbGST alpha I were isolated from both hepatic and pulmonary cDNA libraries, whereas clones encoding rbGST alpha II were isolated only from the hepatic library.(More)
Methods have been devised to examine the spectral properties and state of reduction of the pterin ring of molybdopterin (MPT) in milk xanthine oxidase and the Mo-containing domain of rat liver sulfite oxidase. The absorption spectrum of the native pterin was visualized by difference spectroscopy of each protein, denatured anaerobically in 6 M guanidine(More)
The complete primary structures of two distinct rabbit alpha-class glutathione S-transferase (GST) subunits, rbGSTaI and rbGSTaI1, have been derived from cDNA sequences. Clones encoding rbGSTaI were isolated from both hepatic and pulmonary cDNA libraries, whereas clones encoding rbGSTaII were isolated only from the hepatic library. Immunochemical and(More)
A previously unidentified fraction lacking xanthine:O2 activity has been isolated during affinity chromatography of bovine milk xanthine oxidase preparations on Sepharose 4B/folate gel. Unlike active, desulfo, or demolybdo forms of xanthine oxidase, this form, which typically comprises about 5% of an unfractionated enzyme solution, passes through the(More)
The inactivation of sulfite oxidase, a molybdoenzyme containing the Mo cofactor, by arsenite and periodate was investigated. In contrast to ferricyanide (Gardlik, S., and Rajagopalan, K.V. (1991) J. Biol. Chem. 266, 4889-4895), neither of these reagents causes oxidation of the pterin ring of the Mo cofactor. Instead, inactivation by these reagents appears(More)
BACKGROUND Glutathione S-transferases detoxify a broad range of exogenous compounds, but are important also in the metabolism of endogenous compounds. Physiologically relevant substrates are the endoperoxide and hydroperoxide metabolites of arachidonic acid that play important roles in many tissues including the kidney. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We used(More)
