Salts- induced oxidase activity of lipoamide dehydrogenase from pig heart

European Journal of Biochemistry
M Nakamura, I Yamazaki


A weak NADH oxidase activity of lipoamide dehydrogenase at neutral pH is increased as much as 15-fold by the addition of KI or (NH4)2SO4. The addition of NAD+ shifts the optimum pH for the KI-induced oxidase activity from 6.3 to 5.5 without changing the maximum activity. The optimum pH is similarly shifted to 5.6 when sulfhyldryl groups of the enzyme are oxidized in the presence of small amount of cupric ion. The NADH: lipoamide and NADH: p-benzoquinone reductase activities are strongly inhibited by KI but both are increased by the presence of (NH4)2SO4. The known intermediate having a charge-transfer band at 530 nm can be seen upon an addition of NADH to the enzyme in the presence of (NH4)2SO4 but not in the presence of KI. The enzyme flavin is reductase by a stoichiometric amount of NADH when KI is present.

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.
