Adsorption of glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase on condensed monolayers of phospholipid

The Biochemical Journal
M S Wooster, J M Wrigglesworth


The adsorption of [14C] alkylated glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase from rabbit muscle to condensed monolayers of phosphatidic acid was investigated under a variety of conditions. 2. The rate constant for association at 20 degrees C depended on ionic strength. At I/2=60mM the rate constant was 0.39min-1. At I/2=260mM it decreased to 0.27min-1. 3. The apparent association constant (Kass.) for adsorption at I/2=60mM was 1.06 X 10(6)M-1 and was strongly influenced by subphase changes in pH and ionic strength. Measurements of Kass. at 20 degrees and 5 degrees C gave a value for the apparent enthalpy change on adsorption of -33kJ-mol-1. Calculations of the apparent change in free energy and apparent entropy change for the adsorption process gave values of -34kJ-mol-1 and +2J-K-1-mol-1 respectively. 4. Decreasing the amount of phosphatidic acid in the monolayer by replacement with phosphatidylcholine caused the shape of the adsorption isotherm to change from apparent hyperbolic to sigmoid. Subphase changes in pH or ionic strength did not affect the shape of the adsorption isotherm. However, adsorption of enzyme on monolayers of 100% phosphatidic acid in the presence of 1mM-CaCl2 was sigmoid in nature. 5. It is concluded that g...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.
