 Title    Fluorescence Properties of Hog Kidney Aminoacylase I  
 Abstract    The state of the tryptophan residues of porcine kidney aminoacylase I (EC was investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy and chemical modification. The pH-dependence of the fluorescence emission spectrum of the enzyme indicates that its native conformation prevails between pH 6 and 9.5. Within this range, the ionization of a residue with an apparent pKa of 7.1 quenches the enzyme fluorescence by about 15%. A similar reduction of fluorescence intensity accompanies the inactivation of aminoacylase I by treatment with N-bromosuccinimide in low excess. This suggests that in both cases a single tryptophyl residue out of eight residues per subunit is affected. Quenching by iodide revealed that, in the native conformation of the enzyme, 5—6 tryptophans per subunit are accessible, while 2—3 are buried within the protein. 8-Anilinonaph-thalene-L-sulfonate (ANS) is tightly bound to aminoacylase I (1 mol/mol dimer, K d < 1 PM). ANS binding does not interfere with substrate turnover; the spectroscopic properties of the amino-acylase-ANS complex are consistent with bound ANS being excited by radiationless energy transfer (RET) from buried tryptophyl residues of the enzyme.

 Title    M echanism Proposal for a Fluorescent Am anitin Derivative Form ation  
 Abstract    A quantitative fluorimetric detection o f a-amanitin treat­ ed by H 3PO" is proposed. Spectra for both amanitin and tryptophan suggest an extended aromatic structure clearly confirmed by JH NMR spectrography.

 Title    Kinetics of Oxidation of Tryptophan by Sodium Hypochlorite  
 Abstract    The oxidation of tryptophan to 3-indoleacetaldehyde with sodium hypochlorite was investigated with 14 C labelled DL-tryptophan. The reaction was performed under pseudo first order conditions. From the pH dependence of the reaction it was concluded that only the unprotonated tryptophan is converted to the aldehyde. The activation energy is 35 ± 2.2 (SE) kJ x mol -1 as derived from the Arrhenius plot. Variing the pH between 8.5 and 11.0 and the temperature in the range from 298 K to 318 K did not alter the selectivity of the reaction as confirmed by TLC of the product (purity > 90%). A possible reaction mechanism is proposed.

 Title    Metabolism of Anthranilic Acid in Plant Cell Suspension Cultures  
 Abstract    Cell suspension cultures of some 12 plants were investigated for anthranilic acid metabolism. Rapid uptake of substrate is accompanied by partial excretion of anthranilic acid-N-glucoside and followed by predominant conversion into tryptophan. Ring cleavage reactions of anthranilate could not be observed but peroxidatic polymerisation occurred to a high percentage. Anthranilic acid-N-glucoside is not permanently stored by the cell cultures.
