Indoleacetaldehyde Reductase of Cucumis sativus

  title={Indoleacetaldehyde Reductase of Cucumis sativus},
  author={Hugh M. Brown and William K. Purves},
Indoleacetaldehyde reductase catalyzes the conversion of indoleacetaldehyde to indole ethanol in extracts of Cucumis sativus L., with reduced pyridine nucleotide required as co-substrate. NADH and NADPH result in markedly different enzyme behavior, as reflected in reaction kinetics and in responses to inhibitors and activators. It is not yet clear whether there are two separate enzymes, one specific for NADH and the other for NADPH, or whether there is a single enzyme differentially influenced…

Auxin biosynthesis in Pisum sativum: A physico-chemical perspective
It appears that the tryptamine pathway is operative in pea roots; however, it cannot be ruled out that other tryptophan-dependent pathways to IAA are also operative, nor can the authors rule out the possibility of a tryptophile-independent pathway operating in these organs.
The biosynthesis of two naturally-occurring auxins in Pisum sativum L
The evidence presented in this thesis supports parallel biosynthesis of IAA and 4-Cl-IAA by the IPyA pathway and its chlorinated version.
Biosynthesis of Indole-3-Acetic Acid in Higher Plants
This study aims to demonstrate the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus, as a source of infection for other animals, not necessarily belonging to the same breeds.


Isolation and characterization of indole-3-acetaldehyde reductases from Cucumis sativus.
Cucumber seedling indoleacetaldehyde oxidase.
2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid strongly inhibited the indoleacetaldehyde oxidase activity, and it is proposed that this enzyme may be subject in vivo to feedback inhibition by indole-3-acetic Acid.
Indole-3-ethanol Oxidase: Kinetics, Inhibition, and Regulation by Auxins.
The results may be interpreted as showing that IAA is a noncompetitive inhibitor which binds to that conformation of the enzyme which also binds indoleethanol, and the significance of these interactions for the regulation of IAA biosynthesis is discussed.
Isolation of Indole-3-ethanol Oxidase from Cucumber Seedlings.
An enzyme is isolating from cucumber seedlings which catalyzes the oxidation of IEt to indole-3-acetaldehyde (IAAld), which has nearly maximum activity from pH 8 to 11 and appears to be reduced to H(2)O(2).
Auxin biogenesis: subcellular compartmentation of indoleacetaldehyde reductases in cucumber seedlings.
Results indicate a division of the terminal steps of auxin biogenesis into at least two subcellular compartments, and two of the enzymes in the auxin biosynthetic pathway were localized.
Biosynthesis and Metabolism of Indol-3yl-acetic Acid
A tryptamine-forming, L-tryptophan decarboxylase, isolated from tomato shoots, has been partially purified and characterized and compared with those of tryptophan transaminase isolated from the same tissue, and separation of these two enzymes by ammonium sulphate fractionation clearly demonstrated thattryptamine forma tion was due to the activity of the decar boxylase enzyme.
The interpretation of non-hyperbolic rate curves for two-substrate enzymes. A possible mechanism for phosphofructokinase.
It has now been shown that the phenomena of substrate inhibition and activation may occur simultaneously in the following ways.

The most extenisively sttidied isindole-3-acetic acid, which has been isolated inpuire form from sev-eral sources (5,10,20).Toines etal.
