Purification of acetyl-CoA: 17-O-deacetylvindoline 17-O-acetyltransferase from Catharanthus roseus leaves

The enzyme acetyl-CoA: 17-O-deacetylvindoline 17-O-acetyltransferase which terminates vindoline biosynthesis has been isolated from Catharanthus roseus leaves, further characterized and purified to homogeneity by three step column chromatography and subsequent preparative isoelectric focusing. Kinetic properties concerning the enzyme reaction are discussed… CONTINUE READING
