Affinity Chromatographic Investigations on Enzyme Coenzyme Complexes of CoA-Dependent Enzymes

  • B. Limbach
  • H.-L. Schmidt


From the capacity of affinity gels with specifically bound acetyl-CoA, CoA, ATP, and adenosine to citrate synthase and some other CoA-dependent enzymes and from the elution of the bound enzymes by free enzyme analogues, the contribution of defined sites of the CoA-molecule to its binding in the enzyme-coenzyme complexes was determined. Conceptions on the structure of the enzyme-coenzyme complexes were derived. The specific influence of oxaloacetate on the elution of bound citrate synthase by acetyl-CoA is in line with an effectively ordered mechanism of the citrate formation.
