Acid phosphatase

Schizophyllum commune (Split gill fungus)
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 3 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli



Has no activity towards sodium phytate, ATP, ADP, AMP, glucose-6-phosphate, fructose-6-phosphate and beta-glycerophosphate.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

A phosphate monoester + H2O = an alcohol + phosphate.1 Publication

Enzyme regulationi

Activated slightly by Co2+, Ca2+ and Mg2+. Strongly inhibited by NaF, Fe3+ and Al3+, less so by tartrate, Cu2+ and Hg+. Not affected by EDTA, Fe2+ and Zn2+.1 Publication

  1. Vmax=9 nM/min/mg enzyme1 Publication

pH dependencei

Optimum pH is 4.6. Activity decreases sharply with decreases and increases in pH and is absent at pH 8.0. When pre-incubated at different pH levels, activity is stable between pH 4 and 9.1 Publication

Temperature dependencei

Optimum temperature is 50 degrees Celsius. Activity decreases sharply with decreases and increases in temperature. When pre-incubated at different temperatures, activity is stable between 20 and 50 degrees Celsius.1 Publication
