Abstract:


In the present study, polyacrylamide gel (PAG) was utilized as bolster material for the immobilization of in-house extracted and partially purified manganese peroxidase (MnP) through an entrapment technique yielding significant MnP immobilization (87.3±3.3 %) and remarkable stability of the enzyme (37.2±2.4 %) after a storage period of two months at 4°C. The immobilization also increased the optimal temperature by 10 °C and provided an alkaline shift of the pH optimum. Moreover, a significant enhancement in the thermo-stability was observed. After an incubation period of 72 h at 50°C, the PAG-entrapped-MnP still exhibited 41.2 % of the initial activity, whereas the free enzyme was completely inactive. Furthermore, PAG-entrapped-MnP showed an excellent recycling efficiency and retained more than 50% of its initial activity after five consecutive reaction cycles. In conclusion, owing to the economic feasibility, carrier-supported MnP may be a promising candidate for various applications in different industrial sectors.
