Maleylacetate reductase from Trichosporon cutaneum

Biochem J. 1980 Mar 1;185(3):783-6. doi: 10.1042/bj1850783.


The enzyme catalysing the reduction of maleylacetate to 3-oxoadipate was purified 150-fold from Trichosporon cutaneum, induced for aromatic metabolisms by growth with resorcinol as a major carbon source. The enzyme separated upon electrofocusing into three species with PI values 4.6, 5.1 and 5.6. They had similar catalytic properties and the same molecular weight.
