1.The enzymic hydrolysis of amygdalin.
Haisman DR;Knight DJ Biochem J. 1967 May;103(2):528-34.
Chromatographic examination has shown that the enzymic hydrolysis of amygdalin by an almond beta-glucosidase preparation proceeds consecutively: amygdalin was hydrolysed to prunasin and glucose; prunasin to mandelonitrile and glucose; mandelonitrile to benzaldehyde and hydrocyanic acid. Gentiobiose was not formed during the enzymic hydrolysis. The kinetics of the production of mandelonitrile and hydrocyanic acid from amygdalin by the action of the beta-glucosidase preparation favour the probability that three different enzymes are involved, each specific for one hydrolytic stage, namely, amygdalin lyase, prunasin lyase and hydroxynitrile lyase. Cellulose acetate electrophoresis of the enzyme preparation showed that it contained a number of enzymically active components.
2.Growth and the composition and transport of carbohydrate in compatible and incompatible peach/plum grafts.
Moing A;Salesses G;Saglio PH Tree Physiol. 1987 Dec;3(4):345-54.
The growth of scions and rootstocks of compatible (Prunus persica L. Batsch cv. Springtime/Prunus cerasifera L. Ehrh. cv. myrobolan P2032) and incompatible (Prunus persica L. Batsch cv. Springtime/Prunus cerasifera L. Ehrh. cv. myrobolan P18) peach/plum grafts were compared. The composition of soluble carbohydrates in phloem and cortical tissues of both peach/plum grafts and ungrafted plums and the translocation of these compounds across the union of grafted plants were examined. Sorbitol and sucrose were the dominant sugars in the phloem and cortical tissues of plum. A cyanogenic glycoside, prunasin, was present in peach tissues in amounts equivalent to those of sorbitol or sucrose, whereas only small amounts of prunasin were detected in plum tissues. The concentration of prunasin was significantly higher in the phloem of the P18 rootstock of the incompatible graft. Sorbitol was the only sugar significantly depleted in rootstock tissues of the incompatible graft when the first foliar symptoms of graft incompatibility became evident. Translocation studies with 1-(14)C-deoxyglucose showed that the relative distribution of radioactivity across the graft union was similar in both compatible and incompatible grafts.
3.Comparison of kinetic and molecular properties of two forms of amygdalin hydrolase from black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.) seeds.
Kuroki GW;Poulton JE Arch Biochem Biophys. 1986 Jun;247(2):433-9.
Two forms of the beta-glucosidase amygdalin hydrolase (AH I and II), which catalyze the hydrolysis of (R)-amygdalin to (R)-prunasin and D-glucose, have been purified over 200-fold from mature black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.) seeds. These proteins showed very similar molecular and kinetic properties but could be resolved by chromatofocusing and isoelectric focusing. AH I and II were monomeric (Mr 60,000) and had isoelectric points of 6.6 and 6.5, respectively. Their glycoprotein character was indicated by positive periodic acid-Schiff staining and by their binding to concanavalin A-Sepharose 4B with subsequent elution by alpha-Me-D-glucoside. Of the natural glycosidic substrates tested, both enzymes showed a pronounced preference for the endogenous cyanogenic disaccharide (R)-amygdalin. They also hydrolyzed at the same active site the synthetic substrates p-nitrophenyl-beta-D-glucoside and 4-methylumbelliferyl-beta-D-glucoside but were inactive towards (R)-prunasin, p-nitrophenyl-alpha-D-glucoside, and 4-methylumbelliferyl-alpha-D-glucoside. Maximum hydrolytic activity was shown in citrate-phosphate buffer in the pH range 4.5-5.0. AH I and II were inhibited competitively by the reaction product (R)-prunasin and noncompetitively (mixed type) by delta-gluconolactone and castanospermine.
