The Purification and Properties of NADP-Dependent Isocitrate Dehydrogenase from Ox-Heart Mitochondria


To whom correspondence should be sent.


The purification of NADP-linked isocitrate dehydrogenase from ox heart mitochondria is described. The molecular weight from gel filtration, sedimentation equilibrium and gel electrophoresis is 90000 ± 4000, and there are two subunits in the molecule each of which binds NADPH with enhancement of the coenzyme fluorescence. The amino-acid composition is reported, and the absorption coefficient, A2801% estimated from dry weight measurements is 11.8 cm−1.
