In this study, immobilization of laccase (L) enzyme on magnetite (Fe(3)O(4)) nanoparticles was achieved, so that the immobilized enzyme could be used repeatedly. For this purpose, Fe(3)O(4) nanoparticles were coated and functionalized with chitosan (CS) and laccase from Trametes versicolor was immobilized onto chitosan-coated magnetic nanoparticles (Fe(3)O(4)-CS) by adsorption or covalent binding after activating the hydroxyl groups of chitosan with carbodiimide (EDAC) or cyanuric chloride (CC). For chitosan-coated magnetic nanoparticles, the thickness of CS layer was estimated as 1.0-4.8 nm by TEM, isoelectric point was detected as 6.86 by zeta (zeta)-potential measurements, and the saturation magnetization was determined as 25.2 emu g(-1) by VSM, indicating that these nanoparticles were almost superparamagnetic. For free laccase and immobilized laccase systems, the optimum pH, temperature, and kinetic parameters were investigated; and the change of the activity against repeated use of the immobilized systems were examined. The results indicated that all immobilized systems retained more than 71% of their initial activity at the end of 30 batch uses. (C) 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 123:707-716, 2012

Preparation and Characterization of Amino-Functionalized Zeolite/SiO2 Materials for Trypsin-Chymotrypsin Co-immobilization
Dogan, Demet; Sezer, Selda; Ulu, Ahmet; KÖYTEPE, SÜLEYMAN; ATEŞ, BURHAN (2021-08-01)
Inorganic supports have attracted increased attention in enzyme immobilization since they not only improve enzyme stability but also reduce the final cost of enzymatic reactions. Herein, we explored the suitability of the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 materials to co-immobilize trypsin-chymotrypsin mixture. For this purpose, the trypsin-chymotrypsin mixture was co-immobilized on the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 materials and the immobilization yield was 80.7 +/- 7.6%. The pre-support and its modifi...
Preparation and characterization of ni-nitrilotriacetic acid bearing Poly(Methacrylic acid) coated superparamagnetic magnetite nanoparticles
TURAL, Bilsen; KAYA, Murat; Özkan, Necati; Volkan, Mürvet (2008-02-01)
Stable superparamagnetic magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles were synthesized via co-precipitation in the presence of poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) in aqueous solution. The polymer coated Fe3O4 nanoparticles were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis, and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM) techniques. These measurements reveal the presence of magnetite nanoparticles with a size of approximately 8 nm inside...

ŞAHBAZ, DENİZ AKIN; YAKAR, ARZU; Gündüz, Ufuk (2015-05-01)
The aim of this study was to synthesize magnetic Fe3O4 chitosan nanoparticles (m-Fe3O4-CNs) by ionic gelation method and use them as adsorbent for the removal of Bromothymol Blue (BB) from aqueous solutions. Also, the effect of various parameters on the preparation of m-Fe3O4-CNs was investigated in this study. The nanoparticles were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and ...
Development of enhanced ultrafiltration methodologies for the resolution of racemic benzoin
Olceroglu, Ayse Hande; Çalık, Pınar; Yılmaz, Levent (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-15)
In the scope of achieving the separation of chiral molecules, enzyme enhanced ultrafiltration (EEUF), a new method based on polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF), utilizing apoenzymes as ligands, was developed. Benzoin was chosen as the model chiral molecule. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and apo form of benzaldehyde lyase (BAL) (E.C. 4.1.2.38) were used as chiral ligands in PEUF and EEUF experiments, respectively. In order to bind to the target enantiomer well, the addition of ligand to the benzoin solution...
Characterization of extracellular beta-lactamases from penicillin G-resistant cells of Streptococcus thermophilus
Chirica, LC; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Bozoglu, F (International Association for Food Protection, 1998-07-01)
In this study, biochemical properties of two extracellular beta-lactamases produced by penicillin-resistant Streptococcus thermophilus cells were investigated. Both beta-lactamases showed specificity for penicillins but not for cephaloridins. The p-lactamases exhibited different affinities for penicillin G. The one with the higher molecular weight (F1) had a K(m) value of 3.44 mu M and a V(max), value of 8.33, mu mol/min/mg of protein, whereas the beta-lactamase with the lower molecular weight (FII) had a K...
