Abstract : Arginine phosphokinase (EC 2.7.3.3) was purified from honeybee thoraces. Its molecular weight was estimated by Sephadex gel chromatography at about 36,000. In the direction of arginine phosphate synthesis, the enzyme had a pH optimum around 8.3. The energy of activation for the reaction from 22-45 C was 7,000 cal/mole. Other chemical properties are discussed. (Author)
