Basic theoretical and practical aspects of activation parameters are briefly reviewed in the context of cold-adaptation. In order to reduce the error impact inherent to the transition state theory on the absolute values of the free energy (DeltaG(#)), enthalpy (DeltaH(#)) and entropy (DeltaS(#)) of activation, it is proposed to compare the variation of these parameters between psychrophilic and mesophilic enzymes, namely Delta(DeltaG(#))(p-m), Delta(DeltaH(#))(p-m) and Delta(DeltaS(#))(p-m… CONTINUE READING
