Inorganic supports have attracted increased attention in enzyme immobilization since they not only improve enzyme stability but also reduce the final cost of enzymatic reactions. Herein, we explored the suitability of the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 materials to co-immobilize trypsin-chymotrypsin mixture. For this purpose, the trypsin-chymotrypsin mixture was co-immobilized on the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 materials and the immobilization yield was 80.7 +/- 7.6%. The pre-support and its modification were characterized by several techniques. Besides, the charges of the materials were investigated by zeta potentials at pH 5.0. As expected, the zeta potentials shifted from - 24.4 to - 8.16 mV after amino functionalization. Following immobilization, whereas the optimum pH (9.0) was not changed, the optimum temperature shifted from 50 to 40 degrees C. On the other hand, the immobilized trypsin-chymotrypsin showed comparatively higher thermal stability and storage stability than the soluble trypsin-chymotrypsin. The kinetic parameters were also calculated, however, while no significant change was observed in V-max, K-m value increased, which means that the affinity of enzyme to the substrate decreased after immobilization. Most strikingly, the residual activity of immobilized trypsin-chymotrypsin was 58% after eight repeated cycles. In conclusion, the preliminary experiments inferred that the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 particles can be suitable and helpful support for trypsin-chymotrypsin immobilization. Graphic

In this study, immobilization of laccase (L) enzyme on magnetite (Fe(3)O(4)) nanoparticles was achieved, so that the immobilized enzyme could be used repeatedly. For this purpose, Fe(3)O(4) nanoparticles were coated and functionalized with chitosan (CS) and laccase from Trametes versicolor was immobilized onto chitosan-coated magnetic nanoparticles (Fe(3)O(4)-CS) by adsorption or covalent binding after activating the hydroxyl groups of chitosan with carbodiimide (EDAC) or cyanuric chloride (CC). For chitosa...
Production and biochemical characterization of polyphenol oxidase from thermomyces lanuginosus
Astarcı, Erhan; Bakır, Ufuk; Ögel, Zümrüt B.; Department of Biotechnology (2003)
Polyphenol oxidases are enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of certain phenolic substrates to quinones in the presence of molecular oxygen. Polyphenol oxidases are widely used in several applications. In food industry, they are used for enhancement of flavor in coffee, tea and cocoa production, and determination of food quality. In medicine, they have several uses in treatments of Parkinson̕s disease, phenlyketonurea and leukemia. In wastewater treatment, they are used for the removal of phenolic pollutants...
Preparation and characterization of ni-nitrilotriacetic acid bearing Poly(Methacrylic acid) coated superparamagnetic magnetite nanoparticles
TURAL, Bilsen; KAYA, Murat; Özkan, Necati; Volkan, Mürvet (2008-02-01)
Stable superparamagnetic magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles were synthesized via co-precipitation in the presence of poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) in aqueous solution. The polymer coated Fe3O4 nanoparticles were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction, thermal analysis, and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM) techniques. These measurements reveal the presence of magnetite nanoparticles with a size of approximately 8 nm inside...

Glucose oxidase was entrapped in small unilamellar vesicles composed of phosphatidylcholine, dicetyl phosphate and cholesterol. Prediction of the enzyme content of liposomes by calculations based on input concentrations of lipid and protein, dimensions of the lipids and the liposomes yielded one protein per vesicle. The entrapment efficiency was experimentally determined to be about 13%. On the other hand the entrapment efficiency for the small chromate ions was found to be significantly lower (0.1%). T...
Prediction of enzyme classes in a hierarchical approach by using spmap
Yaman, Ayşe Gül; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Enzymes are proteins that play an important role in biochemical reactions as catalysts. They are classified based on the reaction they catalyzed, in a hierarchical scheme by International Enzyme Commission (EC). This hierarchical scheme is expressed as a four-level tree structure and a unique number is assigned to each enzyme class. There are six major classes at the top level according to the reaction they carried out and sub-classes at the lower levels are further specific reactions of these classes. The ...
