Trichosporon cutaneum degraded L-tryptophan by a reaction sequence that included L-kynurenine, anthranilate, 2,3-dihydroxybenzoate, catechol, and beta-ketoadipate as catabolites. All of the enzymes of the sequence were induced by both L-tryptophan and salicylate, and those for oxidizing kynurenine and its catabolites were induced by anthranilate but not by benzoate; induction was not coordinate. Molecular weights of 66,100 and 36,500 were determined, respectively, for purified 2,3… CONTINUE READING
