High impact information on phosphofructokinase

  • Purified phosphofructokinase from the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris was phosphorylated in vitro by the catalytic subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase from the same organism to an extent of approx. 0.5 mol/mol of subunit [1].
  • Activation by phosphorylation of phosphofructokinase from the annelid Lumbricus terrestris and comparison of phosphorylated sites in invertebrate phosphofructokinases [1].
  • The nucleotide sequence of a full-length cDNA encoding phosphofructokinase (PFK) enzyme from the parasitic nematode Ascaris suum was determined [2].
  • Analyses of the subunit primary structure reveal, as in other eukaryotic PFKs, that the amino-terminal half is homologous to the carboxy-terminal half, supporting the hypothesis that the PFK gene evolved by duplication of the prokaryotic gene and that the allosteric sites arose by mutations at the catalytic site [2].
