Purification and properties of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase from Bacillus subtilis spores.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase [D-glucose-6-phosphate: NADP oxidoreductase, EC. 1. 1. 1. 49] obtained from spores of Bacillus subtilis PCI 219 strain was partially purified by filtration on Sephadex G-200, ammonium sulfate fractionation and chromatography on DEAE-Sephadex A-25 (about 54-fold). The optimum pH for stability of this enzyme was about 6.3 and the optimum pH for the reaction about 8. 3. The apparent Km values of the enzyme were 5.7 X 10(-4) M for glucose-6-phosphate and 2.4 X 10(-4) M for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP). The isoelectric point was about pH 3. 9. The enzyme activity was unaffected by the addition of Mg++ or Ca++. The inactive glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase obtained from the spores heated at 85 C for 30 min was not reactivated by the addition of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, dipicolinic acid or some salts unlike inactive glucose dehydrogenase.[1]
