In order to facilitate the Co-Immobilization of dextransucrase and dextranase, various techniques for the immobilization of industrial endo-dextranase from Chaetomium erraticum (Novozymes A/S) were researched. Adsorption isotherms at various pH-values have been determined for bentonite (Montmorillonite), hydroxyapatite and Streamline DEAE. Using bentonite(More)
Co-Immobilization of dextransucrase (DS) and dextranase (DN) into calcium alginate includes the co-entrapment of soluble DS and adsorbed DN. DS converts sucrose into dextran, which is the substrate for DN, so that isomalto-oligosaccharides (IMOs) are follow-up products of dextran hydrolysis. The boundary conditions for the successful preparation are(More)
The integration of all relevant tools for bioreaction engineering has been a recent challenge. This approach should notably favor the production of oligo- and polysaccharides, which is highly complex due to the requirements of regio- and stereoselectivity. Oligosaccharides (OS) and polysaccharides (PS) have found many interests in the fields of food,(More)
A hybrid-immobilization method was developed to improve the long-term stability of laminaribiose phosphorylase immobilized on epoxy supports Sepabeads EC-EP/S. Entrapment in chitosan retained all of the enzyme activity depending on the amount of entrapped solid materials and increased half-life by a factor of 10-94.4 h. No enzyme activity loss was(More)
The most significant drawback of bacterial protein production involving inclusion bodies is the subsequent refolding into bioactive form. Implementation of refolding operations in large-scale applications often fails due to low yields and/or low product concentrations. This paper presents a simple method of integrated refolding by dialysis and matrix(More)
Immobilization methods and carriers were screened for immobilization of Euglena gracilis extract with laminaribiose phosphorylase activity. The extract was successfully immobilized on three different carriers via covalent linkage. Suitable immobilization carriers were Sepabeads EC-EP/S and ECR 8209M with epoxy groups and ECR 8309M with amino groups as(More)
Fermentation kinetics of Penicillium aculeatum ATCC 10409 demonstrated that fungal growth and dextranase release are decoupled. Inoculation by conidia or mycelia resulted in identical kinetics. Two new isoenzymes of the dextranase were characterized regarding their kinetic constants, pI, MW, activation energy and stabilities. The larger enzyme was 3-fold(More)
For commercial applications refolding process must be fast, inexpensive and highly efficient. In the past many strategies for protein refolding were introduced. Still, simple refolding methods with high product concentrations are still rare. Refolding experiments were performed with fructosyltransferase (FTF, EC 2.4.1.162) from Bacillus subtilis NCIMB 11871(More)
