Stabilization of Escherichia coli penicillin G acylase against thermal inactivation by cross-linking with dextran dialdehyde polymers


The thermostabilization of penicillin G acylase (PGA) obtained from a mutant of Escherichia coli ATCC 11105 by cross-linking with dextran dialdehyde molecules, at a molecular mass of 11 500, 37 700 and 71 000 Da, was studied. The thermal inactivation mechanisms of the native and modified PGA were both considered to obey first-order inactivation kinetics… (More)
