In this work, the possibility of constructing a thermo-switchable enzyme according to the "molecular gate" strategy is demonstrated. The approach is based on the covalent attachment of oligodeoxyribonucleotides to cysteine residues of an enzyme adjacent to its active center to form a temporal barrier for enzyme-substrate complex formation. The activity of the modified enzyme that had been studied here-the restriction endonuclease SsoII (R.SsoII)-was diminished by a factor of 180 at 25 degrees capital ES, Cyrillic that almost abolished the enzymatic activity when compared with the unmodified enzyme. However, heating of the modified enzyme to 45 degrees capital ES, Cyrillic resulted in a 30-fold increase of activity. The activity of unmodified R.SsoII also increased on heating from 25 to 45 degrees ; however, the difference did not exceed a factor of 3-4. The changes in enzymatic activity observed were shown to be reversible for both the unmodified and the modified R.SsoII. Variation of the length and the sequence of the attached oligodeoxyribonucleotides might allow greater modulation of the activity of DNA-protein conjugates.
