Enzymatic decarbonylation of fatty aldehydes generates hydrocarbons. The particulate enzyme that catalyzes the decarbonylation has not been solubilized and purified from any organism but a green alga. Here we report the solubilization, purification, and partial characterization of the decarbonylase from a higher plant. Decarbonylase from a particulate preparation from pea (Pisum sativum) leaves, enriched in decarbonylase, was solubilized with beta-octyl glucoside and partially purified. SDS… CONTINUE READING
