Yeast enolase is rapidly inactivated by butanedione in borate buffer, complete inactivation correlating with the modification of 1. 8 arginyl residues per subunit. Protection against inactivation is provided by either an equilibrium mixture of substrates or inorganic phosphate, a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme. Complete protection by substrates correlates with the shielding of 1. 3 arginyl residues per subunit, while phosphate protects 1. 0 arginyl residue per subunit from modification.
