 Title    Further Characterization of Aspartate Aminotransferase from Haloferax mediterranei: Pyridoxal Phosphate as Coenzyme and Inhibitor  
 Abstract    The enzyme aspartate aminotransferase has been isolated from the halophilic bacterium Haloferax mediterranei in its apoenzyme form. The interaction with its coenzyme (pyridoxal phosphate) has been investigated. For concentrations up to 0.05 mM, the incubation with pyridoxal phosphate reconstituted the active complex (holoenzyme) following a second order kinetic with a k2 of 5.2 min'mM"1. This active complex showed a dissociation constant (/Cd) of 7.8 x 10~6 m . For concentrations higher than 0.1 mM, pyridoxal phosphate produced an inactivation process with a complex second order kinetic. This inactivation is partially re­ verted by dialysis or by lysine treatment. Thus, after 80% of inactivation, 55% of the original activity is recovered by a long-time dialysis, and with 50 mM lysine also a partial reactivation (among 20-33%) is observed. The enzyme treated with 1 mM pyridoxal phosphate has a different behavior in Sepharose chromatography indicating that the modified enzyme pre­ sents a smaller size due to a conformational change.
