Immobilization of cells by entrapping in aubasidan

  • V. A. Abelyan


A new technique of immobilization of microbial cells by entrapping in aubasidan, a microbial polysaccharide, was developed. This technique was applied to three cultures:Erwinia aroidea, Pseudomonas sp., andAlcaligenes faecalis, the producers of aspartase and L-aspartate β-decarboxylase. The new method is effective. After immobilization, microbial cells retained 79–91% of their initial enzymatic activity.
