Comparison of the biochemical properties, regulation and function of ATP-diphosphohydrolase from human placenta and rat kidney.

Abstract

ATP-diphosphohydrolase (apyrase. EC 3.6.1.5) has both ATPase and ADPase activity that are stimulated by bivalent metals, with Ca2+ being the most effective. The possible physiological function of this enzyme, associated with placental and renal microvilli, is related to the extracellular metabolism of nucleotides. A comparison of the biochemical properties… (More)
