Enhanced enzyme activity in concentrated salt solutions

  • C. M. Teng
  • W. H. Seegers


The enzyme activity of thrombin, β-factor Xa-E and trypsin was enhanced in 1.0 M sodium citrate solution. Thrombin activated factor X. Synthetic substrate S-2222, designed for factor Xa, was hydrolyzed more rapidly with factor Xa or with thrombin in 1.0 M sodium citrate solution than in dilute salt solutions.
