Immozymes

For each immobilized enzyme optimization of activity and stability is performed. After immobilization all Immozymes are washed extensively. Finally, they are dried yielding an enzyme that can be stored for prolonged times and used in water-free media.

HYDROLYSIS

protease hydrolysis

ELU activity: hydrolysis of (-)L-ethyllactate (“EL” Units) with water to lactic acid.
1 ELU unit = 1 μmol lactic acid released per minute / g immobilized enzyme.
Conditions: 30% ethyllactate in buffer at 25°C and pH 6.8. Reaction time: 5 minutes

ESTERIFICATION


BYU activity: esterification of BOC-tyrosine (“BY” Units) with 1,3-propandiol to BOC-Tyr-OC3H6OH.
1 BYU unit = 1 μmol BOC-tyrosine ester produced per minute / g immobilized enzyme.
Conditions: 10% Boc-tyrosine in 1,3-propandiol (W/V) with 2.5% water at 60°C. Reaction time: 1 hour.


AMIDATION


GAU activity: amidation of BOC-Tyr-OC3H6OH with glycinamide to the corresponding dipeptide.
1 GAU unit = 1 μmol BOC-tyrosine amide produced per minute / g immobilized enzyme.
Conditions: 10% Boc-tyrosine ester and glycinamide (2M) in 1,3-propandiol (W/V) with 2.5% water at 40°C.
Reaction time: 1-24 hour to reach maximum conversion.


Indicative activities of immobilized proteases in:

hydrolysis (ELU), esterification (BYU) and amidation (GAU).
