[Functional carboxylic group in the active center of transketolase].

Abstract

Baker's yeast transketolase is rapidly inactivated in the presence of carboxylic group modifiers, i.e., 1-ethyl-3(3'-dimethylaminopropyl)-carbodiimide or Woodward's reagent K. This inactivation is due to modification of the carboxylic group in the enzyme active center. The essential groups localized in the two active centers of transketolase differ in the… (More)
