The binding reaction between vitamin B6 (B6, pyridoxine) and lysozyme (Lys) was investigated for the first time by isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), at pH 7 at 27C in tris buffer (25mmol.L-1). The enthalpies of LYS+B6 interaction are reported and analysed in term of the extended solvation model. The thermodynamic parameters, enthalpy changes (ΔH) and entropy changes(ΔS) were calculated. These data suggested that hydrophobic interaction was the predominant intermolecular forces stabilizing the complex, which was in good agreement with the results of molecular modeling study. It was found that LYS has one non-cooperativebinding site for Vitamin B6.
