A systematic and general approach has been carried out to provide basic structural and mechanistic information on epsilon- and delta-crystallin with lactate dehydrogenase and argininosuccinate lyase activities respectively from representative species of birds. A detailed kinetic analysis of these two crystallins revealed considerable differences in the… (More)
