1. Is Harrys reasoning right? Do you agree with him? Harrys reasoning is right. Immobilization often prolongs the life of the protein. Thus I agree with Harry that, immobilization can prolong the active lifespan of enzymes (although it can also kill enzyme with certain linkages). 2. Why is that so? Aggregation is often a problem with proteins in solution, the higher the concentration of enzyme, the quicker the aggregation and it can lead the enzymes to die faster. This can be further increased if redox sites are involved, at least in part due to cysteine reactivity and divalent bonds forming between enzymes leading to inactive sludge Additionally, enzymes which undergo conformational changes during their catalysis also can become more prone to denature in a purified state denatured proteins also tend to glom up more readily, rendering dead enzyme quite quickly. Certain enzymes (those designed to chew up other molecules) also will exhibit some activity against themselves (even if low, this adds up quickly in the high concentration, low other-substrate type environment of storage). Immobilization solves several of these problems - enzymes are at a relatively low concentration for aggregation and inter-enzyme reactions with each other, while they can still be at a high relative concentration of reaction with substrate flowed through the beads. From the description the type of beads is Poros-type beads

a. Because the reaction rate is almost the same for the 0.1 and 0.2 cm particle diameter, we can assume that the rate of reaction without immobilizing uricase enzyme is 200 mg l-1 h1 . 100 (Dp = 0.5cm) = = 0.5 200 (Dp = 0.7cm) = b.
