Abstract

Purified nitrate reductase (NR) from spinach leaves was phosphorylated in vitro by NR-inactivating kinase on Ser-543 which is located in the hinge 1 region between the molybdenum-cofactor and haem-binding domains. Phosphorylation of Ser-543 allowed NR to be inhibited by the inhibitor, NIP. Degraded NR preparations in which a proportion of the subunits had lost 45 amino acids from the N-terminus during purification could be phosphorylated by NR kinase on Ser-543, but could not subsequently be fully inhibited by NIP, suggesting a role for the N-terminal tail of NR in NIP binding.
