Dehydrogenation of Ethylalcohol Catalyzed by Alcoholdehydrogenase Under High Pressure
Jong-Gi Jee*, Jin-Young Shin, Jung-Ui Hwang
A pressure effect of the dehydrogenation of ethylalcohol catalyzed by alcoholdehydrogenase was observed in Tris-HCl buffer, pH 8.8 from 25℃ to 35℃ under high pressure system by using our new theory. The theory makes it possible for us to obtain all rate and equilibrium constants for each step of all enzymatic reaction with a single intermediate. We had enthalpy and volume profiles of the dehydrogenation to suggest a detail and reasonable mechanism of the reaction. In these profiles, both enthalpy and entropy of the reaction are positive and their values decrease with enhancing pressure. It means that the first step is endothermic reaction, and its strength decrease with elevating pressure. At the same time, all activation entropies have large negative values, which prove that not only a ternary complex has a more ordered structure at transition state, but also water molecules make a iceberg close by the activated complex. In addition to this fact, the first and second step equilibrium states are controlled by enthalpy. The first step kinetic state is controlled by enthalpy but the second step kinetic state is controlled by entropy.
