Synonym: Pyruvate: oxygen oxidoreductase (phosphorylating)

Purchase

Description

Unit Definition

One unit will produce 1.0 μmole of H2O2 per min during the conversion of pyruvate and phosphate to acetylphosphate and CO2 at pH 6.7 at 37 °C.

Physical form

Lyophilized powder containing buffer salt and sugar

Application

Pyruvate Oxidase (PoxB) converts pyruvate directly to acetate and CO2. It is used to study pyruvate metabolism. It is used to study aerobic metabolism of bacterium, such as Lactobacillus plantarumand Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Pyruvate Oxidase consists of four subunits with identical molecular weights. PoxB reacts with certain aldehydes and phosphate can be replaced by arsenate. Oxygen as well as several artificial compounds can function as electron acceptors. Pyruvate Oxidase is activated by phospholipids as well as monomeric and micellar amphiphiles.
