Previous covalent modification studies showed that tyrosine 114 of Escherichia coli ADP-glucose synthetase is involved in substrate binding (Lee, Y. M., and Preiss, J. (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 1058-1064). We have prepared, via site-directed mutagenesis, an E. coli ADP-glucose synthetase variant (Phe114) containing a Tyr114 to Phe substitution in order to test whether the phenolic hydroxyl group plays a critical role in catalysis. Kinetic characterization of Phe114 ADP-glucose synthetase… CONTINUE READING
