Abstract

An alcohol dehydrogenase from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Aeropyrum pernix was activated by water-miscible organic solvents. This activation was influenced by the kind and the concentration of the added organic solvents. The kcat was increased by a factor of over ten when the mole fraction of acetonitrile was 0.1. This effect was large when organic solvents with large log P values were added. In fact, the kcat showed a strong positive correlation with the log P value of the mixed solvent at a constant mole fraction of water, while it was not affected by the kind of organic solvents added. Both the activation enthalpy and the entropy decreased with an increase in log P. The contribution of the activation enthalpy to the free energy of activation was larger than that of the activation entropy, and the free energy of activation decreased with an increase in log P.
