A simple method for the direct measurement of the catalytic properties of immobilized cells in the flow minicalorimeter, the enzyme thermistor (ET), is presented. A Trigonopsis variabilis strain with cephalosporin C-transforming activity was used as the model system. The yeast cells were immobilized either by crosslinking with a homobifunctional reagent or(More)
The structure of standard and stabilized calcium pectate gel (CPG) beads has been examined by scanning (SEM) and transmission (TEM) electron microscopy. A two-stage crosslinking procedure with polyethyleneimine (PEI) and glutaraldehyde (GA) led to the formation of a more compact layer on the bead surface. On the other hand, the stabilization procedure did(More)
The possibility of using the enzyme thermistor (ET) for the direct determination of kinetic parameters (Km, Ki, Vm) of immobilized enzyme (IME) was evaluated using different preparations of invertase conjugated to bead celluloses. Two different ET columns packed with IME were operated in the mode of a differential enzyme reactor (short length, low substrate(More)
A mixture of heterotrophic bacteria and collection strains of Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas fluorescens were immobilized in calcium alginate or pectate gels. Comparison of respiratory activity, substrate uptake and biosynthetic capacity of immobilized cells showed that both types of carriers permit a prolonged preservation of metabolic activity but the(More)
Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) agents have contaminated human tissue-derived medical products, human blood components, and animal vaccines. The objective of this study was to determine the potential susceptibility to infection of 5 cell lines used or proposed for manufacture of biological products, as well as other lines. Cell lines were(More)
