Volatile anesthetics alter protein stability

, : Volatile anesthetics alter protein stability. Toxicology Letters 100-101: 387-391

1. We have used differential scanning calorimetry to measure the halothane induced change in stability of five lipid-free proteins in aqueous solution. 2. The temperature at peak heat capacity (Tm) as the sample is heated provides a measure of stability. 3. Addition of halothane increases Tm for bovine and human serum albumin, but decreases Tm for hen egg white lysozyme, bovine pancreatic ribonuclease A, and horse skeletal muscle myoglobin. 4. A shift of Tm in either direction may model the action of inhaled anesthetics on relevant proteins in the central nervous system.
