Superiority of cobalt induced acrylonitril hydratase of Arthrobacter sp. IPCB-3 for conversion of acrylonitrile to acrylamide


The activity of cobalt induced acrylonitrile hydratase was found to be 130% higher than the iron induced acrylonitrile hydratase in Arthrobaeter sp. IPCB-3. The activity of cobalt induced hydratase was not affected up to 6% (w/v) acrylonitrile and 25% (w/v) acrylamide. However, iron induced hydratase activity was significantly inhibited even at half the… (More)
