Pyridine nucleotide-dependent glucose dehydrogenase activity in blue-green algae.

Pyridine nucleotide-dependent glucose dehydrogenase activity (GPND) is described for the first time in cell-free extracts of certain blue-green algae. When glucose is added to these crude cell extracts, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate is reduced at twice the rate as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide; but evidence suggests that this activity is… CONTINUE READING
