Studies on the Mechanism of Formation of Optically Active Substances in Living Organisms. Part Ⅰ. General Consideration on the Stereospecificities of Enzymes and on the Possible Occurence of A New Supposed Enzyme

생체내의 광학적활성물질의 생성기구에 관한 연구 (제 1 보) 효소의 광학적특이성 및 신가정효소 "Inverskinase" 의 존재의 가능성에대한 일반적고찰
Tai-Bong Kim

Upon the basis of the results obtained hitherto in the studies of the stereochemical reaction mechanisms, the author has concluded that the stereospecificity of enzymes has essentially a relative character. And the author has pointed out the possibility of the occurrence of a new enzyme "inverskinase", which catalyses the reversible inversions such as D-compound ↔ L-compound in living organisms, and considered the stereospecificity of enzymes and the optical purity of components of living organism from this new standpoint.
