Physiological correlation between nucleoside-diphosphate kinase and the enzyme-associated guanine nucleotide binding proteins



Physiological correlation between nucleoside-diphosphate kinase and the enzyme-associated guanine nucleotide binding proteins



Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 143(2): 552-559



The physiological correlation between NDP-kinase and the enzyme-associated guanine nucleotide binding proteins (G1 and G2) has been studied in vitro. It was found that incubation of the phosphoenzyme (enzyme-bound high-energy phosphate intermediate) of NDP-kinases with one of the nucleoside 5'-diphosphates (NDPs) in the presence of divalent cations (Mg2+ and Ca2+) results in the formation of nucleoside 5'-triphosphates (NTPs) within 40 sec even at low temperatures (below 4 degrees C) without strict base-specificity; and high-energy phosphates on the phosphoenzyme can transfer preferentially to GDP on the guanine nucleotide binding proteins (G1, G2 and r-p21 protein) in the presence of 0.25 mM Ca2+ or 1 mM Mg2+ even if any other NDPs are present in the reaction mixtures. These observations suggest that NDP-kinase may be responsible for the phosphate-transfer between GDP on the guanine nucleotide binding proteins and its phosphoenzyme.
