Answer / suganthi

Easy separation from reaction mixture, providing the
ability to control reaction times and minimize the enzymes
lost in the product.


Re-use of enzymes for many reaction cycles, lowering the
total production cost of enzyme mediated reactions.

State two advantages of using immobilised enzymes. ..

Answer / rishu

Immobilized enzymes are enzymes which are either covalently
bound or absorbed onto the surface of an insoluble support.
Immobilized enzymes have several advantages over the
soluble enzyme.
Convenience: Miniscule amounts of protein dissolve in the
reaction, so workup can be much easier. Upon completion,
reaction mixtures typically contain only solvent and
reaction products.
Economical: The immobilized enzyme is easily removed from
the reaction making it easy to recycle the biocatalyst.
Stability: Immobilized enzymes typically have greater
thermal and operational stability than the soluble form of
the enzyme.
