The enzymetic activity of RNaseA solubilized in reverse micelles formed in cyclohexane by dodecylammonium butyrate(DAB) and water has been investigated with the use of cytidine 2’ , 3’ -phosphate as the substrate. In the investigated concentration range, RNaseA exhibited a "superactivity" in the DAB reverse micelle.
