Using a monoclonal antibody as conformational probe it has been shown that the weakly active nicked-beta 2 dimer of tryptophan synthase generated by proteolytic cleavage at Glu-296, does not undergo on association with alpha subunit a conformational change known to occur in intact beta 2 subunit. This alpha induced conformational change is also prevented in intact beta 2 by the coenzyme pyridoxal-5′-phosphate when the substrate L-serine is absent.
