Chorismate mutase-prephenate dehydrogenase from Escherichia coli: positive cooperativity with substrates and inhibitors.

Investigations have been made at pH 6.0 of the effect of chorismate and adamantane derivatives on the mutase and dehydrogenase activities of hydroxyphenylpyruvate synthase from Escherichia coli. When used over a wide range of concentrations, chorismate 5,6-epoxide, chorismate 5,6-diol, adamantane-1,3-diacetate, adamantane-1-acetate, adamantane-1-carboxylate, and adamantane-1-phosphonate give rise to nonlinear plots of the reciprocal of the initial velocity of each reaction as a function of the inhibitor concentration. The inhibitors do not induce the enzyme to undergo polymerization and have only a small effect on the S20,w value of the enzyme as determined by using sucrose density gradient centrifugation. At low substrate concentration, low concentrations of adamantane-1-acetate cause activation of both the mutase and dehydrogenase activities while at higher concentrations this compound functions as an inhibitor. When chorismate and prephenate are varied over a wide range of concentrations, double-reciprocal plots of the data indicate that the reactions exhibit positive cooperativity. The addition of albumin eliminates the cooperative interactions associated with substrates but has little effect on those associated with inhibitors.[1]
