The effect of chemical crosslinking of invertase with dimethyl suberimidate on its pH stability

Kaplan, O
Bakir, O
The effect of chemical crosslinking of invertase with a homo-bifunctional bisimidoester on its pH stability was studied. Dimethyl suberimidate (DMS) was used as the crosslinker and pH inactivation was investigated in the pH range of 2.5-10. The inactivation mechanisms of both native and DMS crosslinked invertases were observed to follow first-order kinetics during prolonged incubation. Although DMS crosslinking of invertase increased the pH stability of the enzyme over the complete pH range, it was especially effective over the acidic range. The half-lives of invertase increased almost twofold, on average, by crosslinking at the neutral to the acidic range. The effect of crosslinking was especially pronounced at pH 5 since both the half-life of the native invertase and the stabilization factor were very high. Higher activation free energies of inactivation were obtained for DMS crosslinked invertases over the whole pH range which also indicates the stabilization of invertase by crosslinking.


The effect of dissolved species on hydrophobic aggregation of fluorite
Hicyilmaz, C; Bilgen, S; Ozbas, KE (1997-03-10)
The hydrophobic aggregation of fluorite in the presence of Fe3+, Al3+, F- Ca2+, Mg2+ and Ba2+ ions was studied. Electrokinetic potentials were measured to interpret the effect of these ions on aggregation.
The effect of 3-hydroxyphenylboronic acid on thermal characteristics of polybenzoxazine based on phenol and 4-aminomethylbenzoate
Ipek, Halil; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2020-07-01)
In this study, a polybenzoxazine, (PPab) based on phenol and 4-aminomethyl benzoate and its composites containing various amounts of 3-hydroxyphenylboronic acid, (HB) were prepared by stepwise curing. It has been found that thermal properties of composites were improved as the amount of HB introduced was increased. The improvements in thermal characteristics were associated with condensation reactions of hydroxyl groups of polybenzoxazine and ester groups on the aniline linkages yielding a highly cross-link...
Effect of cleaning process on the combustion characteristics of two different rank coals
Kök, Mustafa Verşan; Ozbas, K.E. (2001-11-01)
In this research, thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) was used to determine the combustion characteristics of two different rank coals (Tuncbilek and Af in Elbistan) before and after cleaning process. Applying sink-float process cleaned raw coal samples, and optimum-separating densities for each sample was determined using the criteria of "degree of washability". The results indicated that coal cleaning was very effective on Tuncbilek sample due to its high rank. TG/DTG analysis of raw and cleaned samples indicated d...
The deactivation behavior of the TiO2 used as a photo-catalyst for benzene oxidation
Üner, Deniz (1999-01-01)
In this study, the deactivation behavior of TiO2 as a photocatalyst for benzene decomposition to carbon dioxide and water was investigated. The effect of space time on the benzene and carbon dioxide conversions were monitored. Benzene conversion and carbon dioxide production rates were not correlated, indicating accumulation of a carbon containing intermediate on the surface. This intermediate was blocking the active sites at a stiochiometry of 1 C:1 site. High space times favored the production of carbon d...
The effect of benzo substitution on complexation of diaza 18-crown-6 ethers derivatives with NaClO4
