Purified maize leaf phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (EC 4.1.1.31) was completely inactivated by several thiol-modifying reagents, including, CuCl2, CdCl2 and N-ethylmaleimide. The inactivation by CuCl2 could be reversed by dithiothreitol, suggesting the involvement of vicinal dithiols in the inactivation process. Complete inactivation of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase was correlated with the incorporation of two mol (3H)N-ethylmaleimide per 100-kilodalton subunit. The total protection of the… CONTINUE READING
