The absence of direct correlation between the efficiency of functioning of ATPase and peptide hydrolase sites of Lon protease was revealed. It was shown that Lon protease is an allosteric enzyme, in which the catalytic activity of peptide hydrolase sites is provided by the binding of nucleotides, their magnesium complexes, and free magnesium ions in the enzyme ATPase sites. It was revealed that the ADP–Mg complex, an inhibitor of the native enzyme, is an activator of the Lon-K362Q (the Lon… CONTINUE READING
