Calorimetric studies of the binding of Streptomyces subtilisin inhibitor to subtilisin of Bacillus subtilis strain N'.

Abstract

The binding of Streptomyces subtilisin inhibitor (SSI) to subtilisin of Bacillus subtilis strain N' (subtilisin BPN', EC 3.4.21.14) was studied by isothermal calorimetry at pH 7.0 and at various temperatures ranging from 5 to 30 degrees C. Thermodynamic quantities for the binding reaction were derived as a function of temperature by combining the data reported for the dissociation constant with the present calorimetric results. At 25 degrees C, the values are delta G degrees = -57.9 kJ mol-1, delta H = -19.8 kJ mol-1, delta S degree = 0.13 kJ K-1 mol-1, and delta Cp = -1.02 kJ K-1 mol-1. The entropy and the heat capacity changes are discussed in terms of the contributions from the changes in vibrational modes and in hydrophobic interactions.
