UNLABELLED The Thermodynamics of Enzyme-catalyzed Reactions Database (TECRDB) is a comprehensive collection of thermodynamic data on enzyme-catalyzed reactions. The data, which consist of apparent equilibrium constants and calorimetrically determined molar enthalpies of reaction, are the primary experimental results obtained from thermodynamic studies of(More)
The thermodynamics of the conversion of aqueous xylose to xylulose has been investigated using high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) and microcalorimetry. The reaction was carried out in aqueous phosphate buffer over the pH range 6.8-7.4 using solubilized glucose isomerase with MgSO(4) as a cofactor. The temperature range over which this reaction was(More)
The thermodynamics of the enzymatic hydrolysis of cellobiose, gentiobiose, isomaltose, and maltose have been studied using both high pressure liquid chromatography and microcalorimetry. The hydrolysis reactions were carried out in aqueous sodium acetate buffer at a pH of 5.65 and over the temperature range of 286 to 316 K using the enzymes beta-glucosidase,(More)
The thermodynamics of the equilibria between aqueous ribose, ribulose, and arabinose were investigated using high-pressure liquid chromatography and microcalorimetry. The reactions were carried out in aqueous phosphate buffer over the pH range 6.8-7.4 and over the temperature range 313.15-343.75 K using solubilized glucose isomerase with either Mg(NO3)2 or(More)
The thermodynamics of the hydrolysis of lactose to glucose and galactose have been investigated using both high pressure liquid chromatography and heat-conduction microcalorimetry. The reaction was carried out over the temperature range 282-316 K and in 0.1 M sodium acetate buffer at a pH of 5.65 using the enzyme beta-galactosidase to catalyze the reaction.(More)
Microcalorimetry and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) have been used to conduct a thermodynamic investigation of reactions catalyzed by PABA synthase, the enzyme located at the first step in the shikimic acid metabolic pathway leading from chorismate to 4-aminobenzoate (PABA). The overall biochemical reaction catalyzed by the PabB and PabC(More)
Microcalorimetry and high-performance liquid chromatography have been used to conduct a thermodynamic investigation of the following reactions catalyzed by the tryptophan synthase alpha 2 beta 2 complex (EC 4.2.1.20) and its subunits: indole(aq) + L-serine(aq) = L-tryptophan(aq) + H2O(1); L-serine(aq) = pyruvate(aq) + ammonia(aq); indole(aq) +(More)
The thermodynamics of 10 industrially-important, enzyme-catalyzed reactions are examined. The reactions discussed are: the conversions of penicillin G to 6-amino-penicillinic acid using the enzyme penicillin acylase; starch to glucose using amylases; glucose to fructose using glucose (xylose) isomerase; cellulose to glucose using cellulase; fumaric acid and(More)
Microcalorimetry has been used to determine enthalpy changes for the hydrolysis of a series of oligosaccharides. High-pressure liquid chromatography was used to determine the extents of reaction and to check for any possible side reactions. The enzyme glucan 1,4-alpha-glucosidase was used to bring about the following hydrolysis reactions: (A) maltose(aq) +(More)
Measurement of the phosphorus content of nucleotides and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) offers an approach to the quantitation of nucleic acids that is traceable to the SI. Such measurements can be an alternative to the commonly used spectroscopic tools that are not traceable. Phosphorus measurements of thymidine 5'-monophosphate (TMP) and acid-digested(More)
