1. 1. Xanthine dehydrogenase was purified from wild-type and adenine-resistant strains of Drosophila melanogaster. 2. 2. The mol. wt, subunit mol. wt, isoelectric point and electrophoretic mobility of the enzyme from the two strains were similar. 3. 3. The enzyme from the resistant strain was more stable during heat treatment (50°C) and overnight dialysis (4°C) than that from the wild-type strain. 4. 4. Kinetic data show an increased catalytic efficiency for the enzyme from the resistant strain.
