Comparative properties of multiple forms of rabbit muscle phosphofructokinase

I I Rapanovich, Z S Kagan


Some properties of three interconvertible forms of rabbit muscle phosphofructokinase specifically eluted from DEAE-cellulose with 19 mM citrate in 0.1 M tris-phosphate buffer, pH 8,0 (I), with 0,3 M buffer (II) and 1.5 M NaCl (III) are compared. Forms I-III differ in specific activities, alpha-helices content and sedimentation properties. The kinetic behaviour of forms I and III in 25 mM glycylglycine-beta-glycerophosphate, pH 8.3, at inhibitory ATP concentrations is characterized by biphasic velocity versus fructose-6-phosphate concentration curves with nH = 1.0 and 2.3, but with different V and [S]0.5 for the respective forms. At pH 6.8 from I is characterized by the kinetic curves with a lag period, while form III--by that with a burst. Form I reveals negative cooperativity in initial and stationary velocities at low substrate concentrations. The stationary velocity of form III is characterized by negative cooperativity within the whole concentration range studied. At pH 7.0 both forms are inhibited by citrate according to the initial and stationary velocities; however, the Ki values are different. The complex kinetic behaviour of phosphofructokinase corresponds to its complex chromatographic and sedimentation behaviour. The...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
