Abstract: Cross-linked enzyme aggregates (CLEA) of Aspergillus oryzea α-amylase (AoAA) and Aspergillus niger glucoamylase (AnGA) were prepared using glutaraldehyde and dextran polyaldehyde as crosslinkers. The maximum activity recoveries for glutaraldehyde cross-linking were 21.8 % and 41.2 %, respectively. The addition of a proteic feeder (bovine serum albumin) exhibited a negative effect on the activity recoveries for both enzymes. Dextran polyaldehyde was used as a cross-linking agent instead of glutaraldehyde to reduce the activity losses. As a result, an activity recovery of 60.0 % was obtained for Aspergillus oryzea α-amylase. On the other hand, no activity recovery was observed for Aspergillus niger glucoamylase due to the latter enzyme’s affinity for dextran.

Keywords: immobilisation – glucoamylase – α-amylase – glutaraldehyde – dextran polyaldehyde – crosslinked enzyme aggregates (CLEAs)
