Glucoamylase was covalently immobilized onto pHEMA/EGDMA microspheres of two different sizes: 50-100 mu m and 100-200 mu m in diameter. The activity of the enzyme on smaller microspheres was found to be almost twice that of the larger microspheres. A higher enzyme lending was observed on small microspheres (0.64 mg g(-1) support) as compared to large spheres (0.40 mg g(-1) support). The K-m of glucoamylase was significantly increased (approximately five times) upon immobilization, indicating decreased affinity by the enzyme for its substrate. V-max of the enzyme was, however, not as significantly altered upon immobilization as the K-m. More significantly, the V-max was much higher with the large substrate (dextrin) than it was with the small substrate (maltose). Activity of the immobilized enzyme was quite stable. In 120 h, only 9.0% of the immobilized glucoamylase activity was lost. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Inc.


Immobilization of tyrosinase in polysiloxane/polypyrrole copolymer matrices
Arslan, A; Kiralp, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-01)
Immobilization of tyrosinase in conducting copolymer matrices of pyrrole functionalized polydimethylsiloxane/polypyrrole (PDMS/PPy) was achieved by electrochemical polymerization. The polysiloxane/polypyrrole/tyrosinase electrode was constructed by the entrapment of enzyme in conducting matrices during electrochemical copolymerization. Maximum reaction rate (V-max) and Michaelis-Menten constant were investigated for immobilized enzyme. Enzyme electrodes were prepared in two different electrolyte/sol vent sy...
Optical Modulation With Silicon Microspheres
Yüce, Emre; Serpenguzel, Ali (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-10-15)
In this letter, a silicon microsphere coupled to a silica optical fiber half coupler has been characterized for electrooptical modulation in the L-band at 1.55 mu m. Electrooptical modulation of the transmitted and the 90 degrees elastic scattered signals for both the TE and the TM polarizations of the microsphere resonances has been observed.

Alcohol oxidase was covalently immobilized onto magnetic beads of two different sizes, 75-150 mu m and 50-75 mu m in diameter, fabricated in the presence of glycidylmethacrylate and methylmethacrylate via suspension polymerization in the presence of a cross-linker (i.e., ethylenedimethylmethacrylate). The activity of the enzyme on smaller microspheres was found to be almost 4.8 fold higher than that of the larger counterparts. Although enzyme loading was same for both fractions, activity and the affinity of...
Numerical analysis, design and two port equivalent circuit models for split ring resonator arrays
Yaşar Örten, Pınar; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Split ring resonator (SRR) is a metamaterial structure which displays negative permeability values over a relatively small bandwidth around its magnetic resonance frequency. Unit SRR cells and arrays have been used in various novel applications including the design of miniaturized microwave devices and antennas. When the SRR arrays are combined with the arrays of conducting wires, left handed materials can be constructed with the unusual property of having negative valued effective refractive indices. In th...
Near-Infrared Resonant Cavity Enhanced Silicon Microsphere Photodetector
Murib, Mohammed Sharif; Yüce, Emre; GÜRLÜ, Oguzhan; SERPENGÜZEL, Ali (2009-05-06)
Elastic scattering intensity calculations at 90 degrees and 0 degrees for the transverse electric and transverse magnetic polarized light were performed at 1200nm for a 50 mu m radius and 3.5 refractive index silicon microsphere. The mode spacing between morphology dependent resonances was found to be 1.76 nm. The linewidth of the morphology dependent resonances was observed to be 0.02 nm, which leads to a quality factor on the order of 10(4).
