Glyceraldehyde-3 Phosphate Dehydrogenase From the Red Kangaroo (Megalelia Rufa): Purification and the Amino Acid Sequence Around a Reactive Cysteine Academic Article uri icon


  • Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase from leg muscle of M. rufa has been extracted and purified. The reaction of the enzyme with iodoacetate, the amino acid composition, tryptic fingerprint, and some amino acid sequences (in-cluding that around the reactive cysteine) indicate that kangaroo glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase is almost identical with pig glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase.
