Active site labeling of the shikimate pathway enzyme, dehydroquinase. Evidence for a common substrate binding site within dehydroquinase and dehydroquinate synthase.


Dehydroquinase, the third enzyme of the shikimate biosynthetic pathway, is inactivated by iodoacetate. Iodoacetate behaves as an affinity label for the Escherichia coli enzyme with a Ki of 30 mM and a limiting inactivation rate of 0.014 min-1 at pH 7.0 and 25 degrees C. Affinity labeling is mediated by the negative charge of the reagent since iodoacetamide… (More)
