Probing the catalytic site of rabbit muscle glycogen phosphorylase using a series of specifically modified maltohexaose derivatives


Glycogen phosphorylase (GP) is an allosteric enzyme whose catalytic site comprises six subsites (SG1, SG−1, SG−2, SG−3, SG−4, and SP) that are complementary to tandem five glucose residues and one inorganic phosphate molecule, respectively. In the catalysis of GP, the nonreducing-end glucose (Glc) of the maltooligosaccharide substrate binds to SG1 and is… (More)
