Stereochemical aspects of the interaction between isomerases and their substrates

Abstract:

The work presented in this thesis is concerned with the mechanism of two enzymes of the glycolytic pathway, each of which catalyzes an aldose-ketose isomerization.

The first part of the thesis deals with triosephosphate isomerase, which catalyzes the interconversion of dihydroxyacetone phosphate and D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate. A mechanism has been proposed for this reaction that involves the transfer of a proton between carbon centres of the substrates, and an enzyme-boun...
