Abstract

Acid phosphatase (E.C.3.1.3.2.) thermal deactivation at pH 3.77 has been investigated by monitoring the enzyme activity as a function of time in the hydrolysis of p‐nitrophenyl phosphate. The experimental curves obtained show a two‐slope behavior in a log (activity)versus‐time plot, which indicates that deactivation occurs via a complex mechanism. From the dependence of the kinetic parameters on both deactivation and hydrolysis temperatures, it is inferred that the deactivation mechanism involves intermediate, temperature‐dependent, less‐active forms of the enzy
