AbstractA specific Mg2+-dependent bis(5'-adenosyl)-triphosphatase (EC was purified 270-fold from Escherichia coli. The enzyme had a strict requirement for Mg2+. Other divalent cations, such as Mn2+, Ca2+, or Co2+, were not effective. The products of the reaction with bis(5'-adenosyl) triphosphate (Ap3A) as the substrate were ADP and AMP in stoichiometric amounts. The Km for Ap3A was 12 +/- 5 microM. Bis(5'-adenosyl) di-, tetra-, and pentaphosphates, NAD+, ATP, ADP, AMP, glucose 6-phosphate, p-nitrophenylphosphate, bis-p-nitrophenylphospate, and deoxyribosylthymine-5'-(4-nitrophenylphosphate) were not substrates of the reaction. The enzyme had a molecular mass of 36 kilodaltons (as determined both by gel filtration and sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis), an isoelectric point of 4.84 +/- 0.05, and a pH optimum of 8.2 to 8.5. Zn2+, a known potent inhibitor of rat liver bis(5'-adenosyl)-triphosphatase and bis(5'-guanosyl)-tetraphosphatase (EC 3.6 1.17), was without effect. The enzyme differs from the E. coli diadenosine 5',5'''-P1, P4-tetraphosphate pyrophosphohydrolase which, in the presence of Mn2+, also hydrolyzes Ap3A.
