Replacement of methoxatin by 4,7-phenanthroline-5,6-dione and the inability of other phenanthroline quinones, as well as 7,9-di-decarboxy methoxatin, to serve as cofactors for the methoxatin-requiring glucose dehydrogenase of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus

    Abstract

    Glucose dehydrogenase from A. calcoaceticus has been dissociated into apoenzyme and methoxatin coenzyme, and enzyme activity restored by replacing coenzyme with 4,7-phenanthroline-5,6-dione but not with 1,10- nor 1,7-phenanthroline-5,6-diones nor with 7,9-decarboxy methoxatin.
