Covalent Linkage: III. Immobilization of Enzymes by Intermolecular Cross-Linking
A very versatile chemical method for immobilizing enzymes and other proteins is intermolecular cross-linking with multifunctional reagents. The method can produce enzyme conjugates of diverse physical character depending on the conditions employed. Thus, conjugates can be prepared that are water-soluble or water-insoluble; granular, gel-like, or filamentous in nature; or that are pure protein. It is reliable and inexpensive.
