The ratios of the oxidation rates of aldose sugars, determined in cell-free extracts of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, vary with the strain and growth conditions used. Three distinct forms of glucose dehydrogenase with different substrate specificities, occurring in variable proportions in these extracts, are responsible for this effect. One form is the already known “soluble glucose dehydrogenase”, the other two forms are complexes containing enzyme and components of the respiratory chain. The… CONTINUE READING
