Serratia marcescens chitinase was immobilized by covalent binding to a polymer (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate, AS-L) showing reversibly soluble-insoluble characteristics with pH change. The immobilized enzyme (CH-AS) was soluble above pH 5.2 and insoluble below 4.5, which offers advantages in that it can carry out hydrolysis of chitin… CONTINUE READING
