The effects of calcium ions and adenine nucleotides on the activity of pig heart 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex

The Biochemical Journal
J G McCormack, R M Denton


1. The effects of Ca2+ (mainly by using EGTA buffers), pH, ATP and ADP on the activity of the 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex from pig heart were explored. 2. Ca2+ (about 30 micrometer) resulted in a decrease in the apparent Km for 2-oxoglutarate from 2.1 to 0.16 mM (at pH 7) without altering the maximal velocity. At 0.1 mM-oxoglutarate there was a 4--5-fold activation by Ca2+, with an apparent Km for Ca2+ of 1.2 micrometer. A similar activation was also observed with Sr2+ (Km 15.1 micrometer), but not wised markedly from pH 7.4 TO 6.6. The effects of Ca2+ remained evident over this pH range. 4. In the presence of Mg2+, ATP resulted in a marked increase in the apparent Km for oxoglutarate, whereas ADP greatly decreased thisp arameter. The concentrations of adenine nucleotide required for half-maximal effects were about 10 micrometer in each case. 5. The effects of the adenine nucleotides and Ca2+ on the apparent Km for oxoglutarate appeared to be essentially independent of each other, reversible, and demonstrable in the presence of end product inhibition by NADH and obtained. 6. Effects similar to those described above were also observed on the activity of 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase from rat heart and brown adipose tissu...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.

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.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
