an inactivated form of this enzyme retains an appreciable amount of secondary structure elements even on heating to 94C, but loses its tertiary structure at low temperature of 44.5C resulting in a state reminiscent of a molten globule. The presence of 500 mm NaCl decreases Tmax at pH 7.5 from 54C to 49C
