The dimeric form of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase isolated from maize: physical and kinetic properties.


Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase purified from maize was a homodimer of molecular weight 200 kDa and was readily converted to a tetrameric form in the presence of Mg2+ plus PEP or Mg2+ alone. During the assay, the enzyme activity increased with time, reaching a steady state after a discernible lag, suggesting its hysteretic nature. The hystereses was not due… (More)
