Abstract : The kinetic properties of honeybee arginine phosphokinase (APK), which catalyzes the reaction: Arginine phosphate + ADP + H(+) = arginine + ATP, have been studied. The results from initial velocity, radioisotope exchange and product inhibition studies suggested that the enzyme has a rapid equilibrium, random mechanism. (Modified author abstract)
