Abstract

Kinetic runs of microgel-aldolase mediated reactions between dihydroxyacetone phosphate cyclohexylamine salt and D-glyceraldehydes were made in CH2CN, THF, DMF, DMSO and MeOH and aqueous-organic solution of these solvents at physiological temperature 37º. The same runs were effected between DHAP cyclohexylamine salt and non-natural aldehyde acceptors under similar conditions. Reaction was fastest in 1:3 DMSO/ H2O, faster than in aqueous medium the environment in which this enzyme normally operates. Preparation of a non-natural sugar using this system is related.
