Preparation of immobilized papain covalently bound on natural cellulose for treatment of beer

Summary

Papain was covalently immobilized on both natural wood chip and cotton without substantial loss of enzymic activity, and its optimum pH was 6–10; optimum temperature, 67°C. The immobilized papain showed high activity for hydrolysis of beer peptide and was used in treatment of beer for 28 days without loss of activity.
