Human salivary amylase was immobilized to soluble dextran T-70. On comparing the thermal stabilities of the immobilized and free enzyme it was found that the former was much more stable. It was also found that immobilization to the dextran resulted in the enzyme having a broader pH range and an increased temperature optimum.
