Copper amine oxidases : structures, catalytic mechanisms, and role in pathophysiology

Even supposing the quantity of study on copper amine oxidases has grown speedily and considerably long ago decade, the sector regrettably suffers from loss of unity and demanding confusion surrounds elements so simple as affirmation of enzyme identities. This publication describes the constitution of the enzymes, the position of copper, and of the bizarre cofactor 6-hydroxydopa quinine derived from a posttranslational amendment of a tyrosine residue.

Marine Phytoplankton and Productivity: Proceedings of the invited lectures to a symposium organized within the 5th conference of the European Society for Comparative Physiology and Biochemistry — Taormina, Sicily, Italy, September 5–8, 1983

Whilst i used to be requested to prepare this symposium on marine producti­ vity, it made me think of what features of this topic will be stimulating to a heterogeneous team of laboratory-oriented physiolo­ gists and biochemists. lately there were a number of books which discusses the method prevalent in fundamental construction reports and defined the significance of photosynthetic CO relief 2 in quite a few parts of the world's oceans.

The “solvent” for these reactions consists of the highly organized protein. By stabilizing the structure at one stage of the reaction, the protein might be likely to inhibit the next stage of the reaction. It may be only through careful design that a 22 DAVID E. METZLER pathway leading rapidly through all the individual steps of the reaction can be found. It would be surprising if evolution had not selected protein structures that would facilitate each step of the sequence. HC=O (11) Y --CH&H,PO," (12) Y P -CH----CHPOl'- (tram) A curious result is observed when pyridoxal phosphate is removed from aspartate aminotransferase and is replaced with various analogs.

However, tautomerism still exists. It is clear from studies of the temperature and solvent dependence of the spectrum and through careful resolution with log normal curves that 5-deoxypyridoxal has not only a 390-nm absorption band for the dipolar ionic aldehyde but an overlapping band for the neutral tautomer at 357 nm. In addition, depending on the pH, a relatively large fraction of the aldehyde is covalently hydrated. An example, the spectrum of the monoprotonated form of 5-deoxypyridoxal (6) in 80% methanol, is shown in Figure 1.

The substrate itself becomes, for a short distance, part of the fi structure forming the backbone of one of the two domains of the molecule (35,65,66). Lysozyme requires N-acetyl groups in the substrate for rapid enzymatic activity. At least two of these N-acetyl groups enter into formation of hydrogenbonded chains with groups in the protein and bridge the cleft in the molecule. One chain leads into the /3 structure and another leads from the DAVID E. METZLER 28 \ ,c=q A125a 'O-H. , T41 a ' G S H HGQ Fig.
