• The purified recombinant enzyme was used in mimosine degradation assays, and the chromatogram of the major product was found to be identical to that of 3-hydroxy-4-pyridone ( 3H4P ), which was further verified by electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry. (plantphysiol.org)
  • It was found to be highly efficient and specific in catalyzing mimosine degradation, with apparent K m and V max values of 1.16 × 10 −4 m and 5.05 × 10 −5 mol s −1 mg −1 , respectively. (plantphysiol.org)
  • The presence of other aromatic amino acids, including l -tyrosine, l -phenylalanine, and l -tryptophan, in the reaction did not show any competitive inhibition. (plantphysiol.org)
  • Although mimosine may be regarded as an analogue of tyrosine, the adverse effects appear not to be mediated via any antagonism between the two amino acids. (karelsavry.us)
  • It is a member of the class III extradiol dioxygenase family, a group of enzymes that use a non-heme Fe(II) to cleave aromatic rings between a hydroxylated carbon and an adjacent non-hydroxylated carbon [ PMID: 16849108 ]. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • Considering its biochemical properties of inactivating various enzymes that require either bivalent metallic ions or PLP as cofactors, mimosine may have a role in plant defense, and based on its chemical composition, it may serve as a reservoir of carbon and nitrogen for survival and growth under nutrient-limiting conditions.

  • 4. The polymer as claimed in claim 2 wherein the hydrocarbon-based group is selected from the group consisting of: a cycloalkyl group containing from 3 to 20 carbon atoms, and preferentially from 4 to 12 atoms, an aromatic group containing from 6 to 20 carbon atoms, an alkyl group containing from 1 to 20 carbon atoms, and an alkylaryl or arylalkyl group containing from 6 to 20 carbon atoms.
