Abstract. The enzymatic activity of 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonate 8-phosphate (KDOP) synthase was detected in eight diverse plant species, thus providing enzymological data consistent with recent reports of the presence of 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonate in plant cell walls. KDOP synthase from spinach was partially purified and characterized. It possessed weak activity as 3-deoxy-D-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate (DAHP) synthase. In the presence of phosphoenolpyruvate, which conferred dramatic… CONTINUE READING
