Illoelwyn-Hughes (14) has explained this discrepancy by assuming 10-20 internal degrees of freedom in the enzyme molecule. A more elegant explanation has been offered by Eyring and Stearn (15) who interpret the rapid rate of enzyme inactivation as related to the high entropy of activation. /mole/degree have been calculated for the inactivation of certain enzymes from the statistical theory of reaction rates (equation (8)) and are presented in Table I. /degree, which occur on enzyme inactivation, counterbalance the large activation energies and result in rapid reaction rates instead of the infinitely slow ones predicted without reference to entropy changes (16).

More recently the Arrhenius equation has been derived in essentially the same form from the collision theory of chemical reactions by Hinshelwood (3) and MoelwynHughes (4). The most rigorous development of a theoretical equation relating kinetics to temperature has come from statistical mechanics where the equation derived is similar to, but not identical with, the Arrhcnius equation (cf.

9040 cal. for the heat of dissociation of a single proton) and 18,300 cal. represents the energy quantity involved in the h a 1 activation process according to La Mer (21). Eyring and Stearn (15) have pointed out that the enormous entropy of 136 cal. per degree for pepsin inactivation is almost solely 8880ciated with a loss of structure or increase in randomness during the ionization process; little change in entropy is involved in the h a 1 step of activation leading to denaturation. It appears that the first steps in activation leading to denaturation involve the breaking apart of salt bridges between acid and basic groups held together by hydrogen bonds according to Mirsky and Pauling (22).
