Immobilized alpha-Galactosidase in the Biochemistry Laboratory
Mulimani, V. H.; Dhananjay, K.
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n12 p1974-1975 Dec 2007
This laboratory experiment was designed to demonstrate the application of immobilized galactosidase in food industry to hydrolyze raffinose family oligosaccharides in soymilk. This laboratory experiment was conducted for postgraduate students of biochemistry and developed for graduate and undergraduate students of biochemistry, biotechnology, chemical engineering, and food technology courses. The students were able to compare the hydrolysis of raffinose family oligosaccharides by free and immobilized-galactosidase. This experiment illustrates the basic concept of immobilization and its application. (Contains 3 figures and 1 note.)
