I made the appropriate test and found that the enzyme is indeed inhibited by thiocyanate. I said that inhibition of carbonic anhydrase by ·thiocyanate can be expressed by the equation [SCN-] + [CA-active] = [CA-SCN-inactive]. ( 1-7) The mass action equation is [SCN-][CA-active] [CA-SCN-inactive] =K · (1-8) I showed that equation ( 1-8) is a correct description of inhibition by measuring the ratio ofinactive to active carbonic anhydrase at several concentrations ofthiocyanate (Fig. 1-18, left) and the relation between active and inactive concentrations of carbonic anhydrase at several total concentrations ofthe enzymein the presence of a constant concentration ofthiocyanate (Fig.

It did not attack trichloracetic acid or chloroform. 74 Hanke's second abstract reported the presence of organic chloride, by which he meant ether-extractable chlorides, in gastric and intestinal tissue. In the oxyntic mucosa the organic chlorides amounted to one-third to one-half ofthe total chlorides. When he incubated these organic chlorides, Hanke found that they were slowly hydrolyzed, with the production of acid. The lowest pH reached was 2. " 75 In fairness to Hanke, I must record that he soon discovered that his "organic chlorides" were salts and not ethers, and that he said they are not associated with acid production.
