Title
An improved method of lipase preparation incorporating both solvent treatment and immobilization onto matrix
Abstract

A simple and effective preparation of lipases for use in organic solvents is hereby proposed. Lipases in aqueous solution were treated with isopropanol, immediately followed by immobilization onto a commercially available macroporous resin CRBO2 (crosslinked polystyrene with N-methylglucamine as a functional group). The dual modification of lipases by (1) isopropanol treatment and (2) immobilization improved the activity and stability of lipases more significantly than either of the two treatments alone. The degree of lipase activation was dependent on isopropanol–buffer (v/v) ratio and the source of lipase used. Among the lipases tested, Rhizopus oryzae lipase was more significantly activated. The maximum specific activity of R. oryzae lipase after dual modification was 94.9 mmol h−1 g−1, which was, respectively, 3.3-, 2.5- and 1.5-fold of untreated free, untreated immobilized and treated free lipases. The conformations of the treated and untreated free lipases were investigated by circular dichroism (CD) measurement. Changes in the far- and near-UV CD spectra of lipase indicate that lipase activation is accompanied by changes in secondary and tertiary structures of lipases. The increase in negative molar elipticity at 222 nm suggests that the α-helical content of lipase increase after pretreatment.
