Auxin-Stimulated NADH Oxidase Purified from Plasma Membrane of Soybean.

Author information

Department of Biological Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907.


NADH oxidation by plasma membrane vesicles purified from hypocotyls of etiolated soybean seedlings by two-phase partition was stimulated 2- to 3-fold by auxins, indole-3-acetic acid, 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4-D), and alpha-naphthaleneacetic acid. The stimulation was concentration dependent in the presence or absence of detergent with a maximum for 2,4-D at 1 micromolar. The NADH oxidation activity was solubilized with the zwitterionic detergent CHAPS and purified by ion exchange chromatography and gel filtration approximately 2000-fold over the total homogenate. Both the partially purified fraction and an active band from nondenaturing gel electrophoresis revealed the same three bands when analyzed by denaturing gel electrophoresis. When obtained from plasma membrane vesicles from the region of rapid cell elongation, the NADH oxidase complex retained auxin responsiveness throughout purification (3- to 5-fold stimulation by 1 micromolar 2,4-D).
