Rat osseous plate alkaline phosphatase: mechanism of action of manganese ions
MetadataShow full item record
Polidocanol-solubilized osseous plate alkaline phosphatase was modulated by manganese ions in a similar way as by zinc ions. For concentrations up to 1.0 n m, the enzyme was stimulated by manganese ions, showing site-site interactions (n = 2.2). However, larger concentrations (> 0.1 μm) were inhibitory. Manganese ions could play the role of zinc ions stimulating the enzyme synergistically in the presence of magnesium ions (Kd = 7.2 μm; V = 1005.5 U mg-1). Manganese ions could also play the role of magnesium ions, stimulating the enzyme synergistically in the presence of zinc ions (Kd = 2.2 μm; V = 1036.7 U mg-1). However, manganese ions could not substitute for zinc and magnesium at the same time since ion assymetry is necessary for full activity of the enzyme. A steady-state kinetic model for the modulation of enzyme activity by manganese ions is proposed. © 1995 Rapid Communications of Oxford Ltd.
