Abstract

NADP+ can protect active isocitrate dehydrogenase against attack by several proteases. Inactive phosphorylated isocitrate dehydrogenase is much less susceptible to proteolysis than the active enzyme, and it is not protected by NADP+. The results suggest that binding of NADP+ to, or phosphorylation of, active isocitrate dehydrogenase induces similar conformational states. Fluorescence titration experiments show that NADPH can bind to active but not to inactive isocitrate dehydrogenase. It is suggested that the phosphorylation of isocitrate dehydrogenase may occur close to its coenzyme binding site.
