Studies on phosphatidylinositol phosphodiesterase (phospholipase C type) of Bacillus cereus. I. purification, properties and phosphatase-releasing activity

, : Studies on phosphatidylinositol phosphodiesterase (phospholipase C type) of Bacillus cereus. I. purification, properties and phosphatase-releasing activity. Biochimica et Biophysica Acta 450(2): 154-164

A phosphatidylinositol phosphodiesterase from the culture broth of Bacillus cereus, was purified to a homogeneous state as indicated by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, by ammonium sulfate precipitation and chromatography with DEAE-cellulose and CM-Sephadex. The enzyme (molecular weight: 29000 +/- 1000) was maximally active at pH 7.2-7.5, AND NOT INFLUENCED BY EDTA, ophenanthroline, monoiodoacetate, p-chloromercuribenzoate or reduced glutathione. The enzyme specifically hydrolyzed phosphatidylinositol, but did not act on phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine and sphingomyelin, under the conditions examined. The products from phosphatidylinositol of enzyme reaction were diacylglycerols and a mixture of myoinositol 1- and 1, 2-cyclic phosphates, suggesting that the enzyme was a phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C. The enzyme released alkaline phosphatase quantitatively from rat kidney slices. A kinetic analysis was made on the release of alkaline phosphatase. The results suggest that phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C can specifically act on plasma membrane of rat kidney slices.
