The ATPase Activity of Escherichia coli Expressed AAA+-ATPase Protein
Authors:  Amita Kaundal, Vemanna S. Ramu and Kirankumar S. Mysore, date: 08/05/2020, view: 3300, Q&A: 0
ATPases are the enzymes that breakdown ATP to ADP and release inorganic phosphate (Pi). Here we provide a detailed protocol to determine the ATPase activity of a recombinant AAA+-ATPase protein (GENERAL CONTROL NON-REPRESSIBLE-4 [GCN4]) ...
Measurement of NADPH Oxidase Activity in Plants
Authors:  Amita Kaundal, Clemencia M. Rojas and Kirankumar S. Mysore, date: 10/20/2012, view: 20127, Q&A: 1
NADPH oxidase is a membrane-bound enzyme that generates (O2-) by transferring electrons from NADPH to molecular oxygen O2. O2-is spontaneously dismasted to the more stable form H2O2. Both O2- ...
