Regulation of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase from maize leaves by nitrate and alanine

Regulation of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase from maize leaves by nitrate and alanine

Biochemistry International 23(2): 299-305

Nitrate and alanine were found to stimulate partially purified maize leaf phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase under specific assay conditions. Both metabolites stimulated the enzyme at low pH (7.0-7.5) and low substrate levels (1mM phosphoenolpyruvate). Nitrate was found to have a biphasic effect on the enzyme, stimulating at low concentrations (1mM-3mM), with a decrease in stimulation at higher levels. Nitrate caused inhibition of activity at pH 8.0 and although alanine caused some stimulation in activity at pH 8.0 this was not as marked as at the lower pH levels.
