摘要

Difference spectroscopy and the method of continuous variation have been used to study the stoichiometry of the binding of 5-bromocytidine triphosphate (BrCTP) and of carbamyl phosphate to aspartate transcarbamylase. The regulatory subunit binds 1 equiv of BrCTP to a protein equivalent molecular weight of 17,000, and native aspartate transcarbamylase binds 6 equiv to a protein equivalent molecular weight of 310,000. The catalytic subunit binds three equivalents of the substrate, carbamyl phosphate, per catalytic subunit of mol wt 100, 000. Since native aspartate transcarbamylase has two catalytic subunits and a molecular weight of 310,000, these data suggest that the enzyme has six regulatory and six catalytic sites.
