Covalently bound pyruvate in phosphopantothenoylcysteine decarboxylase from horse liver.

Horse liver phosphopantothenoylcysteine decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.36) incorporates nonexchangeable tritium from borotritide with a decrease of the activity. Substrate prevents both tritium incorporation and the decrease in activity. Acid and base hydrolysis of the tritiated protein releases labeled lactate identified by high-voltage paper electrophoresis… CONTINUE READING
