Abstract

Apparent equilibrium constants have been measured for the following biochemical reaction:L-aspartate(aq) + 2-oxoglutarate(aq) = oxaloacetate(aq) + L-glutamate(aq).This reaction, catalyzed by aspartate transaminase, was studied over the ranges 283.15 T/K -1) rG°m = (4.82 0.21) kJ mol-1, the equilibrium constant K = (0.143 0.012), the standard molar enthalpy change δrm = -(10 10) J K -1, mol-1 for the following chemical reference reaction at T = 298.15 K and /m =O:L-aspartate-(aq) + 2-oxoglutarate2-(aq) = oxaloacetate2-(aq) +L-glutamate-(aq).Under near physiological conditions (T = 311.15 K, pH = 7.0, Im = 0.25 mol kg-1) the apparent equilibrium constant K' for the overall biochemical reaction is calculated to have the value 0.147; the standard transformed Gibbs energy change δrm = 4.96 kJ mol-1 under these conditions.
