The three isozymes of mouse brain enolase (alpha alpha, alpha gamma and gamma gamma) were subjected to pressures between 160 MPa and 380 MPa. Enzymatic activity 2 min after the pressure exposure was used to monitor pressure-induced changes in the physical state of the protein. Pressure caused a reversible inactivation of all three forms; alpha alpha showed a continual inactivation with increasing pressure whereas the inactivation curves for alpha gamma and gamma gamma were biphasic.
