We studied the effect of carbamoylphosphate (CP) on L-aspartate aminotransferase (GOT) and L-alanine aminotransferase (GPT), compared to its effect on L-threonine deaminase (TD). GPT and GOT were slightly inhibited by CP, while TD was strongly inhibited. GPT and TD, but not GOT, were inactivated when preincubated with CP. Only GOT was enhanced by pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP), but not when the coenzyme was preincubated with CP. When the enzymes were resolved by p-chloromercuribenzoate (PCMB) treatment to apoenzymes, only GOT retained 47% of the original activity. Reconstitution of the apoenzymes with PLP also followed different course; activities of GPT and TD were completely restored while GOT remained partially inactivated. Treatment of apoenzymes with CP resulted in impairment of their reconstitution except GPT, activity of which could be completely restored. When PLP was pre-treated with CP before reconstitution, however, even GPT was only partially restored. The data indicated that CP affect activities of these enzymes at different levels, holoenzymes, PLP and probably apoenzymes. Under a concentration of PLP, activity of GOT would be most enhanced, followed by TD then GPT. In the presence of CP, this effect would be eliminated.
