Abstract

SUMMARY: and species contain quinoprotein glucose dehydrogenase apoenzyme (EC 1.1.99.17). Addition to whole cells of pyrrolo-quinoline quinone (PQQ), the prosthetic group of this enzyme, resulted in the production of gluconic acid from glucose. The reconstitution of apo-glucose dehydrogenase with PQQ was dependent on the presence of Ca or Mg. Optimal conditions for reconstitution allowed maximal glucose dehydrogenase activity in the presence of 1-10 nmol PQQ 1. Synthesis of the apoenzyme of glucose dehydrogenase was not dependent on glucose in the growth media. The physiological significance of the synthesis of apo-glucose dehydrogenase, as found in a variety of bacteria, is discussed.
