Isolation of a 5.3-S calmodulin-deficient 3':5'-cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase from cardiac muscle.

ABSTRACT: 1. In the presence of Ca2+, a 5.3-S 3':5'-cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (EC from bovine ventricle was isolated and purified by (NH4)2SO4 precipitation and DEAE-cellulose and Affi-Gel Blue chromatography. The enzyme activity was enriched 800-fold by these procedures. 2. Sucrose-density gradient centrifugation, gel filtration and non-denaturing polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis resolved a single enzyme species with an Mr of 89 000. 3. Sodium dodecyl sulphate/polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis of the purified enzyme demonstrated a prominent protein band at Mr 59000 and a minor band of Mr 28000. Calmodulin was not detected. 4. The hydrolysis of micromolar concentrations of 3':5'-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cyclic GMP) but not 3':5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cyclic AMP) was stimulated by calmodulin. 5. Anomalous biphasic kinetics plots were observed for both the catalysis of cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP hydrolysis. Kinetic plots became linear in the presence of calmodulin. 6. After several months of storage at -20 degrees C, the 5.3-S enzyme was transformed into a 6.2-S cyclic GMP-specific enzyme and a 4.4-S non-specific form.
