Factors Controlling the Turnover Number of Succinate Dehydrogenase: A New Look at an Old Problem
Identification of the rate-limiting step in the catalytic cycle of succinate dehydrogenase and the related problem of defining the factors which determine its turnover number have for a long time occupied the interest of many investigators. During the past two years a collaboration among several laboratories has been initiated in order to use a variety of experimental approaches to these problems. The present report summarizes the progress which has been achieved.
