To determine optimal pH value for the hydrolysis of p-NPG by leukocyte GCase, we examined effects of variable pH (4.0-5.5) at a constant substrate concentration (5mM). Figure 1 shows the pH activity curves of leukocyte GCase assayed in the presence and absence of 6 mg per ml Sodium taurocholate. In the absence of the pure sodium taurocholate, the activity in the range of pH 4.0-4.8 was considerably lower. However, in the presence of pure Sodium taurocholate, leukocyte GCase was optimally active at pH 5.0, after which the enzyme activity started to decline. Figure 1 also shows that leukocyte glucocerebrosidase activity is completely dependent upon this detergent. Maximum stimulation representing a four- to five-fold increase in activity occurred …show more content…
