Abstract

Stability of glucose oxidase (GOD) immobilized with lysozyme has been considerably enhanced by modification of free thiols generated by reducing disulfide bonds using beta-mercaptoethanol and N-ethylmaleimide in conjunction with additives like antibiotics and salts. Thermal stability of immobilized GOD was quantified by means of the transition temperature, Tm and the operational stability by half-life t1/2 at 70 degrees C. Modification of the free thiols in the enzyme coupled with the presence of kanamycin, NaCl, and K2SO4, led to increase in Tm, to 80, 82 and 84 degrees C (compared to 75 degrees C in control) and t1/2 by 7.7-, 11- and 22-fold, respectively, indicating that this method can be effectively used for enhancing the stability of enzymes.
