The cytosolic fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase from spinach (Spinacia oleracea U.S. hybrid 424) leaves has been partially purified and its response to fructose 2,6-bisphosphate, AMP, and fructose 1,6-bisphosphate studied, using concentrations present in the cytosol during photosynthesis. In the presence of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate, the substrate saturation kinetics for fructose 1,6-bisphosphate are sigmoidal, with half-maximal activity being attained in 0.1 to 1 millimolar concentration range. The inhibition is enhanced by AMP. Using these results, and information published elsewhere on metabolite concentrations, it is discussed how fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase activity will vary in vivo in response to alterations in the availability of triose phosphate and AMP, and the accumulation of the product, fructose 6-phosphate.
