Covalent immobilization of invertase on chemically activated poly (styrene-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) microbeads

Hasırcı, Nesrin
A carrier for invertase enzyme was synthesized from styrene (S) and 2- hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) in the form of microbeads. These poly (styrene-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), P(S-HEMA) microbeads were activated by epichlorohydrin (ECH) treatment for covalent immobilization. The free and immobilized invertase were assayed in the hydrolysis of sucrose to glucose, and the obtained results were compared. The optimum pH was 4.5 for free and 5.5 for immobilized invertase. The optimum temperature of invertase shifted from 45C to 55C upon immobilization. For free and immobilized enzymes, kinetic parameters were calculated as 4.1 x 10(-3) mol L(-1)and 9.2 x 10(-3) mol L(-1)for K-m, and 6.6 x 10(-2) mol L-1 min(-1)and 4.1 x 10(-1) mol L-1 min(-1)for V-max, respectively. After 1 month of storage at 4C, free enzyme retained 36% of its initial activity, while for the ECH-activated P(S-HEMA) immobilized enzyme, P(S-HEMA)-E, this value was observed as 67%. In repeated batch use, i.e., 20 times in 3 days, 78% retention of the initial activity was observed for P(S-HEMA)-E system.

Membranes of the autologous blood-derived biomaterial platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) were functionalized by incorporation of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), an enzyme involved in mineralization of bone, and subsequently incubated in calcium glycerophosphate (CaGP) solution to induce PRFs mineralization with calcium phosphate (CaP) to improve PRFs suitability as a material for bone replacement. Incorporated ALP retained its bioactivity and induced formation of CaP material within PRF membranes, as confirmed by SEM, ...
Electrochromic properties and electrochromic device application of copolymer of N-(4-(3-thienyl methylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl)maleimide with thiophene
Ak, Metin; Camurlu, Pinar; Yilmaz, Faruk; Cianga, Luminita; Yagci, Yusuf; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2006-12-05)
A new copolymer of N-(4-(3-thienyl methylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl)maleimide (MBThi) with thiophene [P(MBThi-co-Th)] was synthesized electrochemically in the presence of tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte, in acetonitrile/borontrifluoride ethylether solvent mixture (80 : 20, v/v). Spectroelectrochemical analysis of the resulting copolymer reflected electronic transitions at 440, 730, and similar to 1000 nm, revealing pi-pi* transition, polaron, and bipolaron band formation, resp...
Integration of clavaminate synthase 2 gene into the chromosome of an industrial strain of Streptomyces Clavuligerus for enhanced clavulanic acid production
Vanlı, Güliz; Özcengiz, Gülay; Özkan, Melek; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
Streptomyces clavuligerus is a gram-positive, filamentous bacterium which has a great ability to produce secondary metabolites including isopenicillin N, cephamycin C and a beta-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. Clavulanic acid (CA) which is a bicyclic beta-lactam, inhibits most of class A beta-lactamases by binding irreversibly to the serine hydroxyl group at the active center of beta-lactamases and resulting in the stable acyl-enzyme complexes. Clavaminate synthase (CAS) is one of the best characterize...
Speciation of Selenium in Supplements by High Performance Liquid Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry
BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; Volkan, Mürvet; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2015-06-13)
Anion and cation exchange high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were used for speciation of selenium in supplements. All the parameters in the extraction, separation, and determination procedures were optimized. Recovery studies for the selenium species from the anion and cation exchange columns were performed and there were no analyte losses. Limits of detection for selenium(IV), selenium(VI), Se in selenomethionine, and Se in sele...
Covalent immobilization of chloroperoxidase onto magnetic beads: Catalytic properties and stability
Bayramoglu, Guelay; Kiralp, Senem; Yilmaz, Meltem; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Arica, M. Yakup (Elsevier BV, 2008-02-15)
Amino groups containing magnetic beads were used in covalent immobilization of the enzyme "chloroperoxidase (CPO)" which is one of a few enzymes that can catalyse the peroxide dependent oxidation of a wide spectrum of organic and inorganic compounds. The magnetic poly(glycidylmethacrylate-methylmethacrylate-etbyleneglycol dimethacrylate), magnetic p(GMA-MMA-EGDMA) beads were prepared via suspension polymerization in the presence of ferric ions. The magnetic beads were characterized with scanning electron mi...
