Abstract

(−)--hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (BOHB-DH) (EC 1.1.1.30) was purified 991-fold from Cd. Its specific activity was 5650 units (mg protein) min. The enzyme is a tetramer, with identical subunits and a total molecular mass of 100 kDa. BOHB-DH is not a glycoprotein. It is acidic and contains six disulphide bonds without free -SH groups. Under the assay conditions used, BOHB-DH activity was maximal at pH 8·0 and at 36 °C. The enzyme is an NAD oxidoreductase, and is inhibited by NADPH and NADH. It has high affinity for -hydroxybutyrate: the value for the -hydroxybutyrate substrate is 1 m. Adenosine phosphates, pyruvate, acetyl-coenzyme A, oxaloacetate and 2-oxoglutarate inhibited purified BOHB-DH.
