Ectoenzyme kinetics in Florida Bay: implications for bacterial carbon source and nutrient status.
The substrates for these ectoenzymes were leucine--methylcoumarynyl (MCA)--amide, methylumbelliferyl (MUF)-D-[micro]Lucoside, MUF-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminide, and MUF-oleate, respectively.
Trehalase is an ectoenzyme
that is linked to membrane by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchor, and excretion of the enzyme can be influenced by renal injuries.
They discovered that introducing certain ectoenzymes to cells would lead to eyes growing.
They produced tadpoles with eyes in their sides, abdomens and tails by judicious use of the right ectoenzymes.
Profiles of ectoenzymes
in the Indian Ocean: phenomena of phosphatase activity in the mesopelagic zone.
Prof Nicholas Dale of Warwick University was studying how frogs move when he put ectoenzymes
into embryos which grew several eyes.
1, ACE), acting as ectoenzymes
on the outer surface of different cells and included in the metabolism of regulatory peptides, like substance P, bradykinin, enkephalins, natriuretic peptides and other vasoactive hormonal peptides (Hooper, 1996).
