Abstract

Structural modification studies have been shown that a cysteine, a histidine and possibly an arginine residue are involved in the catalytic process. The enzyme gave a single band on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and the amino acid analysis showed it to contain a high proportion of hydrophobic residues, which was in agreement with the chemical modification results.
