Gene and primary structures of dye-linked l-proline dehydrogenase from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Thermococcus profundus show the presence of a novel heterotetrameric amino acid dehydrogenase complex

Abstract

Dye-linked l-proline dehydrogenase catalyzes the oxidation of l-proline in the presence of artificial electron acceptors such as 2, 6-dichloroindophenol and ferricyanide. The enzyme from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Thermococcus profundus was purified and characterized for the first time in archaea by Sakuraba et al. in 2001. In this study, cloning and… (More)
