KHAN, M. Today, enzyme technology, amalgamating enzymology with biotechnology, has become a household name in practically all branches of the contemporary science and technology.
The book Principles of Enzyme Technology provides an exhaustive presentation of enzyme technology. The text is organised into four parts out of which the first three are more inclined towards imparting the conceptual aspects of the subject, whereas the fourth part accentuates more on the escalating applications of enzymes in industry, be it food, textile or pharmaceutical. Thus, the book offers a balanced insight into the immense world of enzymes in a single readable volume.
Primarily intended as a text for the students of biotechnology, biochemistry and other life science branches, this book will be of immense use to the professionals as well as researchers for teaching and references.
Characteristics and Kinetics of Enzyme CatalysedReactions. General Considerations.
Applied Enzymology. Suggested Further Reading. Hydrolytic enzymes isolated from bacteria were widely used for a brief period to assist in removing food stains from clothing, but many people suffer allergic reactions to enzymes used in this way, and the practice was stopped. A major objective in enzyme technology is to develop an enzymatic process for the hydrolysis of cellulose to glucose Section A.
If these enzymes could be harnessed for industrial production of glucose from cellulose, this could be an important supplementary food source. Technology already is available to convert glucose into ethanol and ethanoic acid, and from there to many chemicals now derived from petroleum.
A difficult problem in utilizing enzymes as catalysts for reactions in a noncellular environment is their instability. Most enzymes readily denature and become inactive on heating, exposure to air, or in organic solvents.
An expensive catalyst that can be used only for one batch is not likely to be economical in an industrial process.
Ideally, a catalyst, be it an enzyme or other, should be easily separable from the reaction mixtures and indefinitely reusable. A promising approach to the separation problem is to use the technique of enzyme immobilization. This means that the enzyme is modified by making it insoluble in the reaction medium.
If the enzyme is insoluble and still able to manifest its catalytic activity, it can be separated from the reaction medium with minimum loss and reused. Immobilization can be achieved by linking the enzyme covalently to a polymer matrix in the same general manner as is used in solid-phase peptide synthesis Section D. Enzymes also have possible applications in organic synthesis.
