5'-Methylthioadenosine phosphorylase from Caldariella acidophila. Purification and properties.


The occurrence of 5'-methylthioadenosine phosphorylase in Caldariella acidophila, a thermophilic bacterium growing optimally at 87 degrees C, is reported. It represents the first example in prokaryotes of a phosphoryolytic cleavage of the thioether. The reaction products, purified by ion-exchange chromatography, have been identified as 5-methylthioribose-1… (More)
