A methylotrophic hydroxypyruvate reductase was partially purified and characterized from Methylophilus spp. using the biomimetic dye, Cibacron Blue F3FA attached to poly(HEMA-EGDMA) microspheres. The absorption capacities of the dye-affinity microspheres were determined by changing pH and the concentration of the proteins in the adsorption medium. Hydroxypyruvate reductase was desorbed from the dye-affinity support specifically with 2 mM NADH solution. The enzyme was purified 10.4-fold with 47% yield. The molecular mass and subunit molecular mass of the enzyme was estimated to be 75 kDa and 37 kDa on the basis of its mobility in polyacrylamide and SDS-polyacrylamide gels, respectively. This suggested a homogeneous dimer structure. The optimal pH was between 5.0 and 7.0, and the maximum enzyme activity was obtained at 50 degrees C. The K-m values of hydroxpyruvate reductase were 0.222 mM for hydroxpyruvate and 0.067 mM for NADH.

Identification and characterization of hydrolytic enzymes from the midgut of Sunn Pest of wheat (Eurygaster integriceps)
Ogur, E.; YÜCEL, MUSTAFA; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
To help in the development of Sunn Pest-resistant transgenic plants employing protease or alpha-amylase inhibitors, midgut hydrolytic enzymes of Sunn Pest (Eurygaster integriceps, Put.) (Heteroptera: Scutelleridae) were identified and characterized biochemically. We observed levels of very low proteolytic activity of trypsin (3 nmoles/min/mg), elastase (0.66 nmoles/min/mg) and leucine aminopeptidase-like (14.4 nmoles/min/mg) proteases, but no chymotrypsin and papain-like activity. Proteolytic activities wer...
Identification and characterization of hydrolytic enzymes from the midgut of the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera Hubner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
Ozgur, Ebru; Yucel, Meral; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (2009-01-01)
Midgut hydrolytic enzymes of Helicoverpa armigera Hubner (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) were identified and partially characterized. K-m, V-max, optimum pH, and specific activity were determined for proteolytic enzymes and alpha-amylases. All hydrolytic enzyme activity had an optimum pH value in the alkaline pH range. We observed major serine protease activity, together with minor cysteine-like activity, the former being significantly inhibited by soybean trypsin inhibitor (SBTI) and aprotinin. Moreover, differen...
Preparation of cross-linked tyrosinase aggregates
Aytar, Burcu Selin; Bakir, Ufuk (Elsevier BV, 2008-02-01)
Tyrosinase from mushroom was immobilized as a cross-linked enzyme aggregate (CLEA) via precipitation with ammonium sulfate and cross-linking with glutaraldehyde. The effects of precipitation and cross-linking on CLEA activity were investigated and the immobilized tyrosinase was characterized. Sixty percent ammonium sulfate saturation and 2% glutaraldehyde were used; a 3-h cross-linking reaction at room temperature, at pH 7.0 was performed; particle sizes of the aggregates were reduced; consequently, 100% ac...

The M2-type pyruvate kinase was purified from human meningioma by ammonium sulfate precipitation, followed by ion exchange and affinity chromatography. The specific activity of the purified enzyme was 33.4 U/mg with a yield of 6.5%.
Comparison of beta-galactosidase immobilization by entrapment in and adsorption on poly(2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate) membranes
Baran, T; Arica, MY; Denizli, A; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (1997-12-01)
beta-Galactosidase was immobilized in/on poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) membranes by two different methods: adsorption on Cibacron F3GA derivatized pHEMA membranes (pHEMA-CB), and entrapment in the bulk of the pHEMA membranes. The maximum beta-galactosidase adsorption on pHEMA-CB membranes was obtained as 95.6 mu g cm(-2) in 2.0 mg cm(-3) enzyme solution. The adsorption phenomena appeared to follow a typical Langmuir isotherm. In the entrapment, an increase in beta-galactosidase loading resulted ...
