Thiamine triphosphatase activity of myosin and accelerating effect of thiamine di- and tri-phosphates on superprecipitation of actomyosin

TTP accelerated ATP-induced superprecipitation of actomyosin in as low a concentration as 30 muM and decreased light scattering by actomyosin. These effects could also be observed in the same way, but to a lesser degree, by addition to TDP. Myosin was able to hydrolyze TTP to TDP, but some important differences were confirmed between myosin TTPase and ATPase. Myosin TTPase was inhibited by actin and showed a much larger Km than that of ATPase. TTP significantly inhibited myosin B ATPase and ATP greatly inhibited myosin B TTPase. These findings suggest that the accelerating effect of TDP and TTP may be due to the binding of thiamine phosphate to the regulatory site of myosin followed by a change in its physical chemical property, rather than due to the competitive binding of thiamine phosphate to the catalytically activity site of myosin.

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.
