Several esters of the alpha-N-toluene-p-sulphonyl and alpha-N-benzoyl derivatives of S-(3-aminopropyl)-l-cysteine and the methyl ester of S-(4-aminobutyl)-N-toluene-p-sulphonyl-l-cysteine were synthesized. The kinetics of hydrolysis of these and esters of the alpha-N-toluene-p-sulphonyl and alpha-N-benzoyl derivatives of l-arginine, l-lysine, S-(2-aminoethyl)-l-cysteine and esters of gamma-guanidino-l-alpha-toluene-p-sulphonamidobutyric acid and alpha-N-toluene-p-sulphonyl-l-homoarginine by alpha- and beta-trypsin were compared. On the basis of values of the specificity constants (k(cat.)/K(m)), the two enzymes display similar catalytic efficiency towards some substrates. In other cases alpha-trypsin is less efficient than beta-trypsin. It is possible that alpha-trypsin possesses greater molecular flexibility than beta-trypsin.
