Stepwise modification of lysine residues of glucose oxidase with citraconic anhydride.


PMID 16682074

Abstract

Structural properties of modified forms of glucose oxidase made by stepwise specific modification have been investigated. By a single step modification, one of the modified forms resulted in the conversion of native structure of glucose oxidase to molten globule like form [S. Hosseinkhani, B. Ranjbar, H. Naderi-Manesh, M. Nemat-Gorgani, FEBS Lett. 561 (2004) 213-216]. Chemical modification of lysine residues in glucose oxidase was carried out using different concentration of citraconic anhydride. Modification brought about changes in the tertiary structure with some degree of alteration in secondary structure. FTIR, far and near-UV CD spectropolarimetry, intrinsic and extrinsic fluorescence spectroscopy showed structural changes of glucose oxidase in a concentration dependent manner. This was supported by comparative study of secondary and tertiary structure.
