Enzymes activation applying high pressure homogenization

Abstract

A growing number of industries are replacing the chemical reactions by enzymes in their production processes. Despite the observed increase, many companies are still resistant to the use of enzymes due to their costs and low stabilities in the usual conditions of application. Some technologies have been developed to overcome these obstacles, among which is the application of non-thermal processes. The alternative of using high pressure homogenization (HPH) was studied by some authors only with low commercial interest enzymes. The results are indicative that this process can be effective in increasing the activity of enzymes. This project aims at studying the effect of HPH on eight different enzymes of commercial interest, determining the optimal conditions of pH, temperature and pressure of homogenization for maximum activation of enzymes. Also to evaluate the stability of these enzymes after processing with the pH, temperature action and substrate concentration to determine whether, in addition to gains in activity, the enzymes become more stable and therefore easier to use under actual conditions of industrial processes. It will also be evaluated during the storage the stability of the enzymes in order to determine the reversibility of the observed changes. Finally, the evaluation of the tridimensional structures of enzymes will indicate the effect of HPH o its conformation. (AU)
