Increased stability of galactosyltransferase on immobilization.

The stability of galactosyltransferase was greatly enhanced on immobilization. The immobilized enzyme was demonstrated to be insensitive to mechanical stirring for several hours, whereas its soluble counterpart was totally inactivated in less than 60 min under the same conditions. Immobilization also conferred increased thermostability to the enzyme. The… (More)
