The literature and our experimental data on the effect of chemical modification and immobilization on the thermostability of enzymes are analyzed. The effect of various factors causing changes in the stability of enzymes after their modification or immobilization is demonstrated. It is shown that changes in the temperature dependence of the inactivation rate constant are associated with the change in the effective values of thermodynamic activation parameters for the inactivation processes. An increase in the activation energy of thermoinactivation, Ea, leads to the stabilization of a modified or immobilized enzyme at temperatures below the iso-kinetic temperature (“low-temperature” stabilization) and a decrease inE a entails a “high-temperature” stabilization of enzymes. It is shown that with immobilized enzymes the high-temperature stabilization is invariably observed.
