MetaCyc Enzyme: lachrymatory factor synthase

Gene: LFS Accession Number: G-12094 (MetaCyc)

Species: Petiveria alliacea

Summary:
A protein with enzyme activity of lachrymatory factor synthase was isolated from root tissue of Petiveria alliacea. The enzyme fraction was chromatographically purified and characterized by SDS-PAGE [Musah09]. The enzyme is a heterodimeric glycoprotein. It has 2 α-subunits and 1 γ-subunit and 1 δ-subunit. The alpha subunits are linked by a disulphide bridge [Musah09].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 172.0 kD (experimental) [Musah09 ]

pI: 5.2 [Musah09]
