Studies on the sucrose phosphate synthetase kinetic mechanism



Studies on the sucrose phosphate synthetase kinetic mechanism



Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics 180(2): 298-302



The kinetic properties of wheat germ sucrose phosphatase synthetase, which catalyzes the reaction UDP-glucose + fructose 6-phosphate .fwdarw. UDP + sucrose 6-phosphate were studied. A plot of the reciprocal initial velocity vs. reciprocal substrate concentration gave a series of intersecting lines indicating a sequential mechanism. Product inhibition studies showed that UDP was competitive with UDP-glucose and noncompetitive with fructose 6-phosphate. A dead-end inhibitor, Pi, was competitive with UDP-glucose and noncompetitive with fructose 6-phosphate. The results of initial velocity and product and dead-end inhibition studies suggested that the addition of substrates to the enzyme follows an ordered mechanism.
