Abstract

Summary: Adenylate kinase (ATP:AMP phosphotransferase, EC 2.7.4.3) was detected in partially purified preparations of cell-free extracts of The apparent values of adenylate kinase for ADP and Mg were 1 × 10 m and 4 × 10 m, respectively. The enzyme was heat-labile: loss of activity by 80% at 45°C and over 90% at 60°C occurred within 5 min. adenylate kinase was distinct from armadillo adenylate kinase in respect of affinity for substrate and heat-sensitivity.
