The eight rate constants for a four-step ordered ternary-complex mechanism have been compared for lactate dehydrogenases (EC1.1.1.27) from three sources, beef heart, beef muscle, and flounder muscle. The rate constants were determined at temperatures ranging from 5 degrees C to 50 degrees C, and the corresponding activation parameters deltaG not equal to,(More)
The quenching of tryptophan fluorescence by N-bromosuccinamide, studied by the fluorescence stopped-flow technique, was used to compare the reactivities of tryptophan residues in protein molecules. The reaction of N-bromosuccinamide with the indole group of N-acetyltryptophanamide, a model compound for bound tryptophan, followed second-order kinetics with a(More)

The rates of enzyme reactions that are activated or inhibited by added modifiers can in some cases be expressed as a rational function of the first degree, v = (alpha 0 + alpha 1[Q] )/(beta 0 + beta 1 [Q] ) where [Q] is the concentration of the modifier and alpha 0, alpha 1, beta 0, and beta 1 are functions of rate constants and sometimes of the enzyme and(More)
The enzyme beta-glucosidase was attached covalently to the inner surface of nylon tubing. Flow kinetic studies were carried out at a range of temperatures, pH values, flow rates, and substrate concentrations. Various tests showed that the extent of diffusion control was negligible. At 25 degrees C the Michaelis constant was 33.4 mM, not greatly different(More)
