    The maize beta-D-glucosidase Zm-p60.1 releases active cytokinins from their storage/transport forms, and its over-expression in tobacco disrupts zeatin metabolism. The role of the active-site microenvironment in fine-tuning Zm-p60.1 substrate specificity has been explored, particularly in the W373K mutant, using site-directed random mutagenesis to investigate the influence of amino acid changes around the 373 position. Two triple (P372T/W373K/M376L and P372S/W373K/M376L) and three double mutants (P372T/W373K, P372S/W373K and W373K/M376L) were prepared. Their catalytic parameters with two artificial substrates show tight interdependence between substrate catalysis and protein structure. P372T/W373K/M376L exhibited the most significant effect on natural substrate specificity: the ratio of hydrolysis of cis-zeatin-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside versus the trans-zeatin-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside shifted from 1.3 in wild-type to 9.4 in favor of the cis- isomer.
