The adenosine diphosphate (ADP) glucose pyrophosphorylases from Rhodospirillum fulvum, Rhodospirillum molischianum, and Rhodospirillum tenue were partially purified, and their kinetic properties were studied. The enzyme from the three organisms was found to be activated by pyruvate and thus was similar to the Rhodospirillum rubrum enzyme that had been previously studied (C. E. Furlong, and J. Preiss, J. Biol. Chem. 244:2539-2548, 1979). The enzymes from R. fulvum, R. molischianum, and R. tenue… CONTINUE READING
