Indoleacetaldehyde Reductase of Cucumis sativus L: KINETIC PROPERTIES AND ROLE IN AUXIN BIOSYNTHESIS.


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… (More)
