The overall partition coefficients of the acid and amine components of amino acid derivatives, the substrates for proteinase-catalyzed synthesis of oligopeptide precursors, in an aqueous/organic biphasic system were studied both experimentally and theoretically. In a single-component system containing either an acid or amine component, the overall partition(More)
Various factors affecting the stability of thermolysin immobilized by cross-linking with glutaraldehyde were elucidated, particularly in the water-immiscible organic solvents such as ethyl acetate and tert-amyl alcohol. The main reason for enzyme inactivation in water-immiscible organic solvents was found to be autolysis in the water phase, which may(More)
N-(Benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester (Z-AspPheOMe), a precursor of the synthetic sweetener aspartame, was synthesized, using thermolysin immobilized onto Amberlite XAD-7, both in ethyl acetate and in tert-amyl alcohol. The initial rates for synthesis of Z-AspPheOMe in the organic solvents were predicted on the basis of a model(More)
N-(Benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester (Z-AspPheOMe), a precursor of the synthetic sweetner asparatame, was synthesized from N-(benzyloxycarbolyl)-L-aspartic acid (Z-Asp) and L-phenylalanine methyl ester (PheOMe) with an immobilized thermolysin in various organic solvents. We found that in tert-amyl alcohol containing a small amount(More)
N-(Benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester (Z-AspPheOMe), a precursor of the aspartame, and N-(benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-phenylalanyl-Lphenylalanine methyl ester (Z-PhePheOMe) were synthesized from the respective amino acid derivatives with an immobilized thermolysin (EC 3.4.24.4) in ethyl acetate. Various factors affecting the synthesis of(More)
The initial kinetics for the syntheses of N-(benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-alanyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester (ZAPM) and N-(benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester (ZDPM) in an aqueous/organic biphasic system, using free thermolysin were elucidated, both experimentally and theoretically. As model organic solvents, ethyl acetate and tert-amyl(More)
Systems for overexpression and purification of active alpha, beta and gamma subunits of Escherichia coli H(+)-ATPase were established. The alpha and beta subunits recovered as soluble form were purified by hydroxyapatite column chromatography. Since the gamma subunit was overexpressed as the insoluble form, this subunit was purified by polyacrylamide(More)
N-(benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester, a precursor of the synthetic sweetener, aspartame, was synthesized from N-(benzyloxycarbonyl)-L-aspartic acid and L-phenylalanine methyl ester with an immobilized thermolysin (EC 3.4.24.4) in the mixed organic solvent system of tert-amyl alcohol and ethyl acetate. A mixed solvent consisting of(More)
