Efficient Immobilization of Enzymes on Microchannel Surface Through His-Tag and Application for Microreactor
Abstract:We developed a simple immobilisation method for His-tagged enzymes on a microchannel surface. It facilitates immobilisation of protein molecule on microchannel surface through Ni-complex, using crude or purified protein solutions. By this method, we could immobilize proteins on microcapillary constantly. This method might be useful for further development of microreactor with reversibly immobilized enzymes.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
