By Michael J. Moehlenbrock, Shelley D. Minteer (auth.), Shelley D. Minteer (eds.)

In the prior decade, researchers have made great growth within the box of enzyme stabilization, commencing up new possibilities for enzymes in molecular biology and for business purposes. In Enzyme Stabilization and Immobilization: tools and Protocols, professional researchers discover the most recent advancements via particular laboratory protocols, which deal with many various theories and strategies in enzyme stabilization. Chapters define protocols for enzyme stabilization in options, together with: liposome formation, micelle creation, crosslinking, and ingredients. Secondly, the booklet comprise protocols for enzyme stabilization through enzyme immobilization, equivalent to sol-gel encapsulation, polymer encapsulation, and unmarried enzyme nanoparticle formation. Composed within the hugely winning equipment in Molecular Biology™ sequence layout, every one bankruptcy features a short creation, step by step equipment, a listing of priceless fabrics, and a Notes part which stocks pointers on troubleshooting and averting identified pitfalls. entire and present, Enzyme Stabilization and Immobilization: equipment and Protocols is a necessary guide for all molecular biologists, biochemists, and biomedical and biochemical engineers.

Micellar solutions have been shown to increase the thermal stability, as well as the pH and solvent tolerance of enzymes. This field is traditionally referred to as micellar enzymology. This paper details the use of ionic and nonionic micelles for the stabilization of polyphenol oxidase, lipase, and catalase. Key words: Micellar enzymology, Micelles, Superactivity, Enzyme stabilization 1. Introduction Micellar enzymology is a technique for improving the thermal, pH, or solvent stability of enzymes using micelles (1).

Care should be taken to prevent water from being introduced to Hypol 3000 since water will initiate its polymerization. Accordingly, it is recommended that Hypol 3000 is stored at room temperature in a desiccator. RTILs should be free of residual halide ions, which can signi­ ficantly reduce enzyme activity. The presence of impurities including halides in RTILs is easily detectable since such impurities alter the color of RTILs and, in some cases, impart an odor (RTILs, when pure, are colorless and odorless).

This solution is vortexed until homogeneous. 5 mL of the reverse micelle solution above. (See Note 5). 4. Extend the Temperature Stability at 50°C of Catalase in Nonionic Reverse Micelles (7) 23 This method is based on work described by Gebicka et al. in ref. (7). Catalase is an oxidoreductase enzyme that catalyzes the reaction of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen. It is a ­common enzyme and has been used here to show the ability to gain increased temperature tolerance with the use of Brij 30 micelles.
