The carboxyl group reagents dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD) and N-ethoxycarboxyl-2-ethoxy-1,2-dihydroquinoline (EEDQ) inactivate the soluble Rhodospirillum rubrum F1-ATPase (RrF1). The inactivation is both time- and concentration-dependent and also pH-dependent, being more marked at acid pH. Under the same conditions, N-ethyl-5-phenylisoxazolium 3'-sulfonate causes almost no inactivation of the RrF1-ATPase. Complete inhibition of the enzyme activity requires the binding of 1 mol of DCCD/mol of… CONTINUE READING
