Chemical modification of sheep-liver 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase by diethylpyrocarbonate. Evidence for an essential histidine residue.


Sheep liver 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase is shown to be inactivated by diethylpyrocarbonate in a biphasic manner at pH 6.0, 25 degrees C. After allowing for the hydrolysis of the reagent, rate constants of 56 M-1 s-1 and 11.0 M-1 s-1 were estimated for the two processes. The complete reactivation of partially inactivated enzyme by neutral hydroxylamine… (More)
