A. pH dependence of the esterase activity catalyzed by SpOatAC (red) and SaOatAC (blue). The specific activities of the enzymes were determined in 20 mM sodium citrate-phosphate-borate buffer at the pH values indicated at 25 oC. B, C. Determination of the steady-state parameters for the esterase activities of SaOatAC and SpOatAC, respectively. Initial velocities of pNP-Ac hydrolysis were determined for the respective enzymes (5 μM) in 50 mM sodium phosphate buffer pH 6.5 containing 5% (v/v) ethanol at 25 oC. D. Determination of the steady state-parameters for the O-acetyltransferase activity of SpOatAC on chitooligosaccharides. The initial velocities of acetyl transfer to the chito-oligosaccharides at the concentrations indicated were determined using 5 μM enzyme in 50 mM sodium phosphate buffer pH 6.5 at 25 oC with pNP-Ac fixed at 2 mM. E. Michaelis-Menten parameters determined for SpOatAC and SaOatAC from the experiments presented in panels B, C and D. All of the enzymatic experiments were performed in triplicate, with the s.e. noted.
