Purification and properties of acyl coenzyme A thioesterase II from Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides.

Abstract

A high molecular weight acyl coenzyme A (acyl-CoA) thioesterase, designated thioesterase II, has been purified 5300-fold from photoheterotrophically grown cells of Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides. In contrast to R. sphaeroides acyl-CoA thioesterase I [Boyce, S.G., & Lueking, D.R. (1984) Biochemistry 23, 141-147], thioesterase II has a native molecular mass (Mr… (More)
