Catalytic and regulatory properties of the Triton and trypsin forms of the brush border hydrolases

A M UgolevG G Koltushkina


Amphipathic enzymes, invertase (EC, 8-amylase (EC, and alkaline phosphatase (EC, were purified from the rat small intestinal mucosa as trypsin and Triton forms, the catalytic and regulatory characteristics of which were compared in rats and in drosophila. Differences in the catalytic propertiis of the two enzyme forms were demonstrated, which suggested that the hydrophobic part of the enzyme was involved in maintaining optimal conformation of the catalytic part. Many modifiers have beenfound to influence the Triton rather than the trypsin form of the enzyme. It is therefore suggested that the hydrophobic sub-units of the enzymes might be involved in transmitting information from the cytoplasm into the external surface of the membrane, the cell in this way regulating the activity of surface enzymes. If this is indeed the case, it is suggested that the hydrophobic part performs functions not only of external but also of internal regulation.

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.
