Specific labeling of the active site of cytosolic aspartate aminotransferase through the use of a cofactor analogue, N-(Bromoacetyl)pyridoxamine.
TLDR
Evidence is presented indicating that the pK of Lys-258 appears to be highly dependent upon the electrostatic state of neighboring groups in the active site region, and experimentally obtained values vary according to the chemical nature and charge of the modifying agent or probe.
The C1-C2 interface residue lysine 50 of pig kidney fructose-1, 6-bisphosphatase has a crucial role in the cooperative signal transmission of the AMP inhibition.
TLDR
It is strongly indicated that the C1-C2 interface is critical for propagation of the cooperative signal between the AMP sites on the different subunits and also in the mechanism of allosteric inhibition of the enzyme by AMP.
