Evidence of a low-barrier hydrogen bond in the tryptophan synthase catalytic mechanism.


In the absence of other substrates, L-Ser reacts rapidly with the tryptophan synthase alpha 2 beta 2 bienzyme from Salmonella typhimurium at pH 7.8 and 25 degrees C to give an equilibrating mixture of species dominated by comparable amounts of the L-Ser external aldimine Schiff base, E(Aex1), and the alpha-aminoacrylate Schiff base, E(A-A). The D-isomer of… (More)
