Large Unilamellar Phospholipid Vesicles as a Model Substrate for Phospholipase D
Chanwoo Kim, Eun-Hie Koh, Myung-Un Choi*
The hydrolytic susceptibility of large unilamellar vesicle (LUV) toward cabbage phospholipase D (PLD) was studied. The activity of PLD was determined by pH stat titration method. Using phosphatidylcholine LUV as substrate a pH optimum of 6.96 was observed. For maximal activity the optimal temperature of 31℃ and 10 mM of Ca2+ were required. The apparent Km value estimated was 2.5 mM. The hydrolytic activity of PLD toward PC LUV was somewhat high despite the absence of activator in assay system and this high susceptibility of PC LUV may be attributed to the structural properties of LUV. The effect of amphiphatic substances such as dicetyl phosphate and phosphatidic acid on the enzyme activity were also examined in mixed LUVs.
