The enzymes responsible for the phosphorylation of hexoses in the plant cytosolic fraction of soybean (Glycine max L. Merr cv Williams) nodules have been studied and a hexokinase (ATP:d-hexose 6-phosphotransferase EC 2.7.1.1) and fructokinase (ATP:d-fructose 6-phosphotransferase EC 2.7.1.4) shown to be involved. The plant cytosolic hexokinase had optimum activity from pH 8.2 to 8.9 and the enzyme displayed typical Michaelis-Menten kinetics. Hexokinase had a higher affinity for glucose (K(m) 0… CONTINUE READING
