Urease enzyme was immobilized in photographic gelatin by chemical cross-linking using formaldehyde, glutaraldehyde and chromium (III) acetate. The effects of enzyme and cross-linker concentrations, temperature, incubation time and pH on urea hydrolysis were investigated. Effect of reuse on the activity of immobilized enzyme was also studied. Glutaraldehyde (0.004 M) was the most suitable cross-linker; relative activities within 2.5 months after 24 reuses were stable (about 78%).

IMMOBILIZATION OF ALPHA-AMYLASE INTO PHOTOGRAPHIC GELATIN BY CHEMICAL CROSS-LINKING
BAYRAMOGLU, Z; Akbulut, Ural; SUNGUR, S (Elsevier BV, 1992-01-01)
Alpha-amylase was immobilized into photographic gelatin by chemical cross-linking with chromium (III) acetate and chromium (III) sulphate. Cellulose triacetate film strips, enabled simple handling when coated with an alpha-amylase-gelatin mixture, accomplishing a high degree of durability during consecutive immersions into reaction media. The optimum conditions for pH, substrate concentration, temperature, incubation time and storing conditions of free and immobilized alpha-amylase were determined. The effe...
POLYESTER FILM STRIPS COATED WITH PHOTOGRAPHIC GELATIN CONTAINING IMMOBILIZED GLUCOSE-OXIDASE HARDENED BY CHROMIUM(III) SULFATE
ELCIN, YM; Akbulut, Ural (Elsevier BV, 1992-01-01)
Glucose oxidase was immobilized into photographic gelatin hardened by chromium(III) sulphate. The enzyme-gelatin mixture was coated on polyester film strips which allowed easy and simple handling during assays. The effect of gelatin and cross-linker concentrations on water content and enzymatic activity was studied. The effect of pH during immobilization and that of incubation temperature on maximum activity were examined- Enzyme leakage tests were carried out during reuse number studies. Consecutive use of...
Immobilization of yeast cells in acrylamide gel matrix
Hasirci, V.N.; Alaeddinoglu, G.; Aykut, Gül (Elsevier BV, 1988-3)
Entrapment of yeast cells in a three-dimensional polymer matrix was achieved, and various properties of the polymer matrix as well as the invertase activity of the yeast cells were studied. When the matrix was highly cross-linked or synthesized from concentrated polymer solutions, its swelling ratio decreased. Invertase activity was found to increase with water content of the matrix. Cell content of the gel was found to affect adversely enzyme activity. The enzyme was found to retain its activity after seve...
The conductive polyaniline/poly(ethylene terephthalate) composite fabrics
Kutanis, S.; Karakisla, M.; Akbulut, Ural; Sacak, M. (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Conductive composite fabrics were prepared by chemical polymerization of aniline on poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) fabrics in the aqueous hydrochloride acid solutions using potassium dichromate as the oxidant. The effect of the polymerization conditions such as temperature, oxidant, aniline and hydrochloride acid concentrations was investigated on the electrical surface resistance and polyaniline (PAn) content of PAn/PET composite fabrics. The maximum PAn content and the lower electrical resistance of c...
Optimization studies on the features of an activated charcoal-supported urease system
Kibarer, GD; Akovali, G (Elsevier BV, 1996-08-01)
The adsorption of urease onto a well-defined solid support, petroleum-based activated charcoal, has been achieved to provide the enzymatic hydrolysis of urea. In order to produce a biocompatible surface, the enzyme support system has been coated with hexamethyldisiloxane through plasma polymerization. The quality of the resulting coat was tested by electronic spectroscopy for chemical analysis and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Studies on the adsorption of urease, and activity and stability of the...
