Invertase converts sucrose to glucose and fructose. The reaction mechanism for the formation of glucose and fructose was studied by stopped flow spectrophotometer and circular dichroism. The reaction mechanism follows biphasic mode with rate constants of k10.0053 s−1±0.001 s−1 and k2 0.030 s−1±0.01 s−1 for 25 mM concentration of sucrose. Far UV circular dichroic spectrum of invertase in presence of sucrose shows 18 % increase in β conformation as a function of time. Taken together, the invertase hydrolysis follows biphasic mode where it undergoes conformational changes followed by hydrolysis of the sucrose.
