Inhibition by orthophosphate esters of glucose-6-phosphatase
Department or Administrative Unit
Inhibition of rat liver microsomal glucose-6-phosphatase (D-glucose-6-phosphate phosphohydrolase, EC 184.108.40.206) by orthophosphate and organophosphate esters was examined at pH 6.0 and 7.5 with and without enzyme pretreatment with 0.2% (w/v) deoxycholate. Inhibition by orthophosphate and monoethyl phosphate was competitive with respect to glucose-6-P while inhibition by mono- and di-phenyl phosphate was of the mixed type. Monoalkyl phosphates were more effective inhibitors than the analogous di- and tri-alkyl phosphates and deoxycholate potentiated the inhibitory effects. Mono- and di-phenyl phosphates were more effective inhibitors than triphenyl phosphate, and deoxycholate decreased these inhibitory effects. The results are interpreted in terms of inhibitor and deoxycholate interactions with the enzyme.
