Incubation of purified bovine aortic lysyl oxidase with rat liver or calf thymus H1 histone results in the catalytic formation of hydrogen peroxide, indicating the substrate potential of H1 for this connective tissue enzyme. Sodium borotritide-reducible residues consistent with aminoadipic semialdehyde and the lysinonorleucine crosslinkage were generated in H1 by incubation with lysyl oxidase. H1 histone also contains endogenous reducible functions including an unidentified prominent tritiated… CONTINUE READING
