Enzyme immobilization on nanocarriers is nowadays considered a useful tool for improving activity and maintaining biocatalysts stability while facilitating their recovery and reuse.

We investigated the ability of these nanocarriers to interact with a model lipolytic enzyme from Pseudomonas fluorescens and maintain its activity, both in aqueous as well as in organic media.

The obtained bioconjugate, between lipase and the most promising carrier, AgNPs-Pt-DEBP, was stable in a wide temperature range (25-55 °C) and it showed good activity retention both in aqueous (50%) as well as in organic media (75%), compared to the lipase used in soluble form.

Abstract

Enzyme immobilization on nanocarriers is nowadays considered a useful tool for improving activity and maintaining biocatalysts stability while facilitating their recovery and reuse. In this work we prepared Au and Ag based nanoparticles (AuNPs or AgNPs) stabilized with two different ligands, the organometallic dinuclear complex trans,trans-[dithiodibis(tributylphosphine)diplatinum(II)-4,4'-diethynylbiphenyl] (Pt-DEBP) and the organic dithiol 4,4'-dithiol-biphenyl (BI), able to link the NPs in 3D networks. We investigated the ability of these nanocarriers to interact with a model lipolytic enzyme from Pseudomonas fluorescens and maintain its activity, both in aqueous as well as in organic media. In particular, our results highlighted that the nature of the metal plays a role in enzyme adsorption, while enzyme activity is mostly influenced by the chemistry of the organic spacer. The obtained bioconjugate, between lipase and the most promising carrier, AgNPs-Pt-DEBP, was stable in a wide temperature range (25-55 °C) and it showed good activity retention both in aqueous (50%) as well as in organic media (75%), compared to the lipase used in soluble form.
