  • AFFINITY LABELING OF BOVINE LIVER GLUTAMATE-DEHYDROGENASE WITH 8-[(4-BROMO-2,3-DIOXOBUTYL)THIO]ADENOSINE 5'-DIPHOSPHATE AND 5'-TRIPHOSPHATE BIOCHEMISTRY Ozturk, D. H., Safer, D., Colman, R. F. 1990; 29 (30): 7112-7118

    Abstract:

    Bovine liver glutamate dehydrogenase reacts with 8-[(4-bromo-2,3-dioxobutyl)thio]adenosine 5'-diphosphate (8-BDB-TA-5'-DP) and 5'-triphosphate (8-BDB-TA-5'-TP) to yield enzyme with about 1 mol of reagent incorporated/mol of enzyme subunit. The modified enzyme is catalytically active but has decreased sensitivity to inhibition by GTP, reduced extent of activation by ADP, and diminished inhibition by high concentrations of NADH. Since modified enzyme, like native glutamate dehydrogenase, reversibly binds more than 1 mol each of ADP and GTP, it is unlikely that 8-BDB-TA-5'-TP reacts directly within either the ADP or GTP regulatory sites. The rate constant for reaction of enzyme exhibits a nonlinear dependence on reagent concentration with KD = 89 microM for 8-BDB-TA-5'-TP and 240 microM for 8-BDB-TA-5'-DP. The ligands ADP and GTP alone and NADH alone produce only small decreases in the rate constant for the reaction of enzyme with 8-BDB-TA-5'-TP, but the combined addition of 5 mM NADH + 200 microM GTP reduces the reaction rate constant more than 10-fold and the reagent incorporation to about 0.1 mol/mol of enzyme subunit. These results suggest that 8-BDB-TA-5'-TP reacts as a nucleotide affinity label in the region of the GTP-dependent NADH regulatory site of bovine liver glutamate dehydrogenase.
