Additional Information: A new technique for the purification of enzymes has been developed which combines the high selectivity of affinity interaction with the scalability and ease of operation of liquid-liquid extraction. This approach is called as Affinity based Reverse Micellar Extraction & Separation (ARMES). The salient feature of ARMES includes the following: (1) Inherent ease in scalability, (2) Affords high selectivity, (3) Dissociation of ligates from affinity ligand under mild conditions, (4) Native activity of the targeted protein is retained. This approach is considered as a novel separation technique nowadays for the partitioning of highly active biomolecules, where the isolation and purification is achieved in the single step with enhanced selectivity. In the present work, extraction of Bromelain from pineapple (Ananas comosus L. Merryl) waste (core) has been performed using ARMES with Concanavalin A (con A) as an affinity ligand. A purification of 12.32 fold and an activity recovery of 185 % have been achieved and it has been confirmed with SDS PAGE analysis. Parameters like effect of pH on reextraction, concentration of ligand, concentration of binders, type and concentration of surfactants etc. were optimised. This overture is novel in its own way as it deals with a real system i.e. extraction is performed from the crude extract, which is rarely reported. Most of the studies on RME are for model systems.
