This demonstration of the part of mutase played by the co-zymase, or in other words of the identity of co-zymase and co-mutase, is of fundamental importance, for it has fully revealed the central position in the process of fermentation of the complementary enzyme in question.
Axe mentions two other studies – one deals with experiments done with the lambda repressor, and the other with chorismate mutase.
DiMauro S, Miranda AF, Khan S, Gitlin K, Friedman R (1981) Human muscle phosphoglycerate mutase deficiency: newly discovered metabolic myopathy.
On the other hand, the reduced mRNA levels of Notch1, phosphoglycerate mutase 2 (PGAM2), ankyrin repeat domain 2
The muscle-specific isoform (type M, PGAM2) of phosphoglycerate mutase (PGAM) is a housekeeping enzyme which catalyzes the conversion of 3-phosphoglycerate into 2-phosphoglycerate in the glycolysis process to release energy
They have revealed that the new enzyme discovered by them is called 2-hydroxyisobutyryl-CoA mutase, and that it makes it possible to turn a linear C4 carbon structure into a branched one.
The networks related to cellular development and connective tissue disorder showed that enzymes such as phosphoglycerate 12 mutase (glycolysis), muscle proteins such as myosin heavy chain 4 (Actin cytoskeleton signaling), nebulin-related anchoring protein (Actin binding protein) were significantly down regulated by TWEAK (
