Abstract:Preliminary functional assignments for the two subunits in the carboxyltransferase complex have been given. The alpha subunit (AccA) appears to have a structural role in the total ACC complex while the beta subunit (AccD) could contain the carboxyltransferase active site. The above conclusions are based on enzymatic deactivational studies with extracts only overproducing AccBCD with and without PEG (14%) compared to extracts with all four subunits overproduced (AccABCD) for the assignment of the AccA function. Extracts only overproducing AccD contained higher carboxyltransferase activity leading one to conclude the active site for the complex is contained in the AccD subunit.
