abstract A pyridoxal 5'-phosphate-containing peptide which contained 54 amino acid residues was isolated from chicken liver P-protein of the glycine cleavage system following reduction with NaB3H4, carboxymethylation, and proteolysis with lysylendopeptidase. Two peptides which comprise the two halves of the phosphopyridoxyl peptide were isolated from apo-P- protein. Sequence analysis of these three peptides provided the primary structure of the phosphopyridoxyl peptide and revealed that the cofactor is linked to Lys-35. The pyridoxal 5'-phosphate-binding site has the His-Lys(PLP)-X structure characteristic of known pyridoxal 5'- phosphate-dependent amino acid decarboxylases, tryptophan synthase, and serine hydroxymethyltransferase.
