Abstract : A cell designed for absorbancy measurements at high pressures has been constructed and used for a study of the pressure dependence of a thrombincatalyzed hydrolysis. Thrombin is not inactivated at pressures up to 20,000 psi. The rate of hydrolysis of a synthetic substrate (toluene sulfonyl arginine methyl ester) increases appreciably with pressure. (Author)
