The coenzyme A analog, desulfocoenzyme A, does not significantly affect the rate of succinyl phosphate formation from phosphorylated succinic thiokinase (succinate:coenzyme A ligase (adenosine diphosphate), EC The effector action of desulfocoenzyme A seems to require the presence of adenosine triphosphate. Phosphoryl-enzyme is shown to be an intermediate in succinyl phosphate formation from adenosine triphosphate and succinate, and additional evidence is presented supporting the intermediary role of phosphoryl-enzyme in the over-all catalytic mechanism of the enzyme.
