Purification and some properties of a novel heat-stable cis-toluene dihydrodiol dehydrogenase.

ABSTRACT: cis-Toluene dihydrodiol dehydrogenase was purified 200-fold from cells of a thermotolerant Bacillus species grown with toluene as the sole source of carbon and energy. The purified enzyme preparation was remarkably heat-stable and exhibited a half-life of 100 min at 80 degrees C, the temperature optimum. The activation energy of the reaction was 36 kJ.mol-1. Isoelectric focusing indicated that the pI of the native enzyme was 6.4 and that of the denatured enzyme 6.5. Although the pH optimum was 9.8, the enzyme was most stable at pH 8. The Mr of the enzyme was approx. 172,000 as determined by gel filtration and 166,000 by polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis. The enzyme was composed of six apparently identical subunits with Mr values of 29,500. Kinetic analysis revealed that the Km for cis-toluene dihydrodiol was 92 microM and for NAD+ was 80 microM. The apparent Km values for cis-benzene dihydrodiol and cis-naphthalene dihydrodiol were 330 microM and 51 microM respectively. The enzyme was inhibited by mercurials but was unaffected by metal-ion chelators. Steady-state kinetics and product-inhibition patterns suggested that the enzyme mechanism was ordered Bi Bi.
