Kinetic and molecular parameters of human hepatic porphobilinogen deaminase

, : Kinetic and molecular parameters of human hepatic porphobilinogen deaminase. Biochemistry International 21(3): 463-471

A basal level of human liver porphobilinogen deaminase of 3.66 units/g wet weight was found in adult tissue. Activity in neonatal liver was at least three fold higher. Physico-chemical studies revealed that the enzyme has the approximate form of a symmetrical molecule and exhibits hyperbolic kinetics with a Km value of 3.6 microM at pH 7.6. Two ionizable groups with pK values of 7.35 and 8.90 are prominent for catalysis. A set of pI (5.8-4.9) were observed under different conditions. Results demonstrate the existence of a single protein differentially charged with multiple molecular forms in adult liver.
