A protein present in the developing endosperm of maize (Zea mays L.) causes a loss of invertase activity under certain conditions of incubation. This protein, designated an inactivator, inactivates invertase I of maize even in the presence of other proteins. No inactivation of invertase II of maize or yeast invertase has been observed. The inactivator and(More)
A bound invertase and two soluble invertases are found in the developing endosperm of maize (Zea mays L.). The two soluble invertases can be separated on diethylaminoethyl-cellulose and Sephadex columns and distinguished by their kinetic constants. One soluble invertase, invertase I, is present from the 10- to 28-day stages of endosperm development with(More)
Sweetclover (Melilotus alba Desr.) contains a soluble enzyme which oxidizes phenylpyruvate with the addition of either a natural cofactor or Mn2+ and dichlorophenol. The final product of oxidation has not been identilied. Phenylpyruvate oxidation is catalyzed also by horseradish peroxidase, and the oxidation is enhanced by the natural cofactor from(More)
