Effects of water on enzyme-catalyzed reaction of gaseous substrates.

Water participates both in maintaining the catalytically active form of enzyme molecules and in their inactivation. New processes in biotechnology that might take advantage of an ability of enzymes to catalyze gas phase reactions make it desirable to understand the role of water in such reactions. This report presents the results of an investigation into high- temperature, gas phase reactions and reviews the effect of water on enzyme activity in non-aqueous environments.
