Initial velocity data depending upon varied concentration fosfoenolpiruvayo substrate were fitted to a Hill equation equation 1: Received February 23, EDTA ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt was from Merck. Activation by Glc6P could be important during the night or at the onset of illumination before the buildup of malate that takes place during the first hour after illumination [16]. Data analysis Kinetic data were analyzed by nonlinear regression calculations using a commercial computing program formulated with the algorithm of Marquardt [35].

One unit of PEPC is defined as the amount of enzyme needed to catalyze the formation of 1 umol of oxalacetate per min under our experimental conditions. PEPCase activity of plants growing in soil at five P treatments with P added to obtain shoot P ranging from deficient to adequate varied from 0.

Accepted June 8, In leaves of C4 plants the initial reaction in the assimilation pathway of atmospheric CO 2 is the essentially irreversible carboxylation of phospho eno lpyruvate PEP by phospho eno lpyruvate carboxylase orthophosphate: Also, because regulation of PEPC activity by metabolite effectors is mostly exerted at subsaturating concentrations of substrate [21], in the studies with the allosteric effectors we used a fixed total PEP tPEP concentration of only 0.

The differences between the two enzymes in the degree of cooperativity in the binding of PEP in the presence of a high malate concentration are in full agreement with their differences in malate affinity. The results indicate that in vitro PEPCase activity does not significantly change with the range of shoot P from deficient to adequate, and suggest that the mechanism associated with citrate excretion might be impaired at P concentrations lower than those required to inhibit PEPCase activity.


This is consistent with competition between inhibitor and activator for their binding to the enzyme. Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase assay and kinetic studies. In the experiments in which the concentration of the activator was varied at constant concentration of substrates, equation 2 was used: These two limiting concentrations of tPEP are close to those existing in the cytosol of the mesophyll cells during the dark and light periods, respectively [22, 23].

These findings suggest that the binding of Glc6P is not affected by the binding of the inhibitor to this enzyme. The kinetic differences between the allosteric activators acquire special relevance under conditions close to those prevailing under illumination, i. Once the levels of malate are high, saturation of the Glc6P allosteric site would give only a marginal advantage.

Citrate release and activity of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase in roots of white lupin in response to varying phosphorus supply.


Glc6P binds cooperatively to both enzymes, with h values close to 2. But they are by no means redundant. The best fits were determined by the relative fit error, error of the constants and absence of significant correlation between the residuals, and other relevant variables like observed velocities, substrate concentration and data number.

The models were validated using ProCheck [40]. Nishikido, T; Takanashi, H. The allosteric transition would not occur in the amaranth enzyme, thus accounting for the huge differences between the amaranth and the maize enzymes in their degree of activation achieved at saturation by Gly. When near physiological concentrations were used, Glc6P was very ineffective in overcoming malate inhibition [14].

It has been propoosed that one of the functions of the enzyme phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase PEPCase in the roots of white lupines consists in providing the carbon required to support the significant quantity of citrate that is excreted by P-starved plants.

Although the S 0. When the concentration of inhibitor was varied at constant concentration of substrates, the experimental data were fitted to equation 3: These results show that Gly is not an activator of the dicot enzyme either in the absence or in the presence of the inhibitor malate. This is consistent with a lack of effect of malate on the binding of Glc6P and, reciprocally, a lack of effect of Glc6P on the binding of malate.


The results of these kinetic experiments are shown in Figure 1 and summarized in dable 1.

Plants of maize Zea mays L. We tested now the relative contribution of the two kinds of activators in relieving malate inhibition of the two C4 isoenzymes at the tPEP concentration existing during the night, 0. Malate concentrations ranged from fosfoenol;iruvato to 20 mM; Glc6P concentrations from 0 to 20 mM; and Gly concentrations from 0 fosfoenolipruvato mM in the absence of malate, or from 0 to mM in the presence of this inhibitor.

No exogenous bicarbonate was added to the assay media, so that the concentration of bicarbonate was 0. Six of these sequences are from monocot plants and the other seven from dicot plants. The neutral amino acid binding site is not yet known because no structure with this kind of ligand has been determined so far. Neutral amino acids concentrations, particularly that of Gly, increase under photorespiration conditions [15].

Barranca del Muerto No. Protein was measured by the method of Bradford [33], using bovine serum albumin as the standard.

Rates in the absence of PEP were negligible. Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase extraction, purification and assay. Progressive multiple sequence alignment was carried out with the ClustalX package [38], using penalties fosfoenolpiruvayo on secondary structure. Sequence alignments and homology model building.

Introduction In leaves of C4 plants the initial reaction in the fosfoenolpiruvayo pathway of atmospheric CO 2 is the essentially irreversible carboxylation of phospho eno lpyruvate PEP by phospho eno lpyruvate carboxylase orthophosphate: In this loop there are several amino acid residues that are conserved, or with conservative substitutions, within each group of monocots or dicots enzymes, but that differ from one group to the other marked with an asterisk in Figure 3.
