  • 1. Immobilization of Enzymes

2. Introduction Immobilization of enzymes can be defined as the confinement of anenzyme (bio-catalyst) in a distinct phase, separated from the bulkphase but allowing it to exchange with the latter. Bulk Phase consists of a substrate, an effecter or inhibitor. Immobilized enzyme is either physically entrapped or covalentlybonded by chemical means to an inert insoluble matrix or carrier. In other words, it involves the restrictive localization of enzymes. Matrix is generally a high molecular weight polymer.Ex : cellulose, polyacrlamide, alginate, etc.S 3. Introduction S 4. Introduction S 5. Introduction S 6. Introduction S 7. Introduction S 8. Need for Immobilization Accelerates the chemical reaction. Specificity & un-modified enzyme. Cost effective. Not difficult to separate. Attachment to polymers/matrix, causes re-use.S 9. Advantages of Immobilized Enzymes Recovered at the end of the reaction thereby can be reused. Economy of the reaction is improved. Easy separation of enzyme from the products occurs. Stability of immoblilised enzyme increases. Enhanced enzyme properties. Efficiency of the catalytic reaction is better in a few cases. Better control of reaction can be achieved. Catalytic process can be operated continuously. Multi enzyme reaction possible.S Potential in industrial & medicinal use. 10. Methods of Immobilization Parameters for Method Selection :- Overall catalytic activity. Effectiveness of the catalytic utilization. Deactivation & Regeneration characteristics. Cost effective. Intended application of immobilized enzyme. Toxicity of immobilized enzyme. Waste disposal (of immobilization process). S 11.

Carrier for Immobilized Enzymes Ideal Characteristics of the Carrier:- Low Cost & of optimum quality Inertness Physical Strength Stability Regenerability Enhancement of enzyme specificity Reduction of product inhibition S 13. Carrier for Immobilized Enzymes Types of Carriers :Naturally occuringStructural proteins (Ex: ceratin, collagen)Globular proteins (Ex: albumin)Carbohydrates (Ex: dextran)Synthetic organicEx: polyvinyls, epoxide,etcInorganicEx: glass, silica gel, bentonite, titania,etc. S 14. A Non-specific binding like electrostatic orDAhydrophobic affinity binding to special ligand. Mostly explained in following terms:S Static pores Dynamic poresO Reactor LoadingR Electro DepositionP NOTE: Adsorbent (mostly polymeric matrix)T Ex: alumina, bentonite, CMC, Silicagel, Titania, etc.ION 15.

E Advantages:N No chemical modification Relatively stable forms.T Easy handling & reusage.R Disadvantages: May diffusion of substrate & product occurs.A Substrate accessibility may reduced due toP free radical polymerization of gel. Enzyme in-activation.P Loss of enzyme content.I NOTE: Sometimes covalent bonding may formsN between the entrapped enzyme & the matrix.G 19.

Support with groups like : O -OH : support activation covalently by CNBr. N -COOH : supports (like CMC) activationD covalently by azide derivatives.I -NH2 : support activation covalently by forming diazonium chlorides on treatmentNwith NaNO2 + HCl. NOTE: The functional group of enzyme which is involved in the linkage, should not affect the active G properties of the said enzyme. 25.
