The branched chain ammo acid aminotransferases (transaminase B) of Salmonella typhimurium and Salmonella montevideo have been purified and studied kinetically. The results of partial kinetic characterization of the enzyme support the conclusion that the reaction proceeds via a binary “ping-pang” mechanism. The Michaelis constants for the amino acceptor, cr… CONTINUE READING
