||Sillero MA, De Diego A, Osorio H, Sillero A. Dinucleoside polyphosphates stimulate the primer independent synthesis of poly(A) catalyzed by yeast poly(A) polymerase. Eur J Biochem. 2002 Nov269(21):5323-9.PubMed ID12392566
||Poly(A) polymerase from yeast was prepared. One unit of enzyme is the amount that incorporates 1 nmol of ATP (as AMP) into an acid insoluble form in 1 min at 37 °C. After incubation at 30 degrees or 37 degrees, the reaction mixtures were analyzed by TLC or HPLC
||As value>1, this is a positively cooperative reaction: Once one ligand molecule is bound to the enzyme, its affinity for other ligand molecules increases.
