A phosphodiesterase (orthophosphoric diesterase phosphohydrolase. EC and a phosphomonoesterase (EC from rice bran have been partially purified (10. and 70_fold respectively) by heat denaturation, ammonium sulphate fractionation, successive affinity chromatography on cellulose phosphate and chromatography on Sephadex G-150. The purified diesterase fraction runs as two bands and the monoesterase as one band on polyacrylamide disc gel electrophorograms at pH 8", although both enzymes run as a single band at pH 4'3. Both enzymes have a pH optimum at 5'0 with Km values of 0·56 mM and 0.84 mM for bis p- nitrophenyl phosphate and p_nitrophenyl phosphate as substrate respectively. Phosphodiesterase is activated by Co2+ and Mg2+, whereas phosphomonoesterase is not affected by these cations. Both enzymes are partially inhibited by Cu2+, Zn2+, NaF, pCMB. diisopropylftuorophosphate and inorganic phosphate. Theobromine and caffeine seem to inhibit phosphodiesterase activity at higher concentration only.
