Stimulation of mutases and isomerases by vanadium

Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics
G L Mendz


The effects of vanadate and vanadate complexes on the rates of exchange of phosphoryl groups in the reactions catalyzed by the enzymes phosphoglucomutase and the coupled system formed by phosphoglycerate mutase and enolase, and the effects of vanadyl complexes on the interconversion of aldehyde and keto groups catalyzed by the enzymes phosphomannose isomerase, phosphoribose isomerase, and phosphoglucose isomerase, were measured using one-dimensional 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Chemical exchange was investigated by observing the transfer of magnetization achieved by selective irradiation of resonances using the DANTE pulse sequence. The presence of vanadium stimulated the catalytic activity of the enzymes in vitro, with the exception of enolase whose activity was not affected. Addition of vanadate also increased the rate constants of the interconversion of glucose 6-phosphate and fructose 6-phosphate in hemolysates. 51V nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy were employed to investigate the interactions between ammonium vanadate and sugar phosphates and the formation of vanadium--sugar phosphate complexes that may be involved in the stimulation of the catalytic a...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.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Incretins are metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in glucose levels in the blood and they have been implicated in glycemic regulation in the remission phase of type 1 diabetes. Here is the latest research.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.
