Characterization of an immobilized antibody-enzyme complex
- 17 Downloads
Antiserum specific for propanediol dehydrogenase, an enzyme found inNeisseria gonorrhoeae cells, has been immobilized to glass. When mixed withN gonorrhoeae cell lysates, the immobilized antibody (IMA) binds the enzyme. Over 70% of the calculated adsorbed activity can be recovered from the immobilized antibody-enzyme (IMA-E) complex. When mixed with bacterial lysates prepared from different organisms having propanediol dehydrogenase-like activity, the IMA specifically adsorbed the enzyme from theN gonorrhoeae lysate. IMA-E complexes have been prepared and their kinetic, temperature and chemical stability, and antigenic properties investigated. These studies demonstrated the feasibility of using an immobilized antibody in the detection of the propanediol dehydrogenase enzyme.
