Table 2 Half-life of pectinase, xylanase and cellulase in CLEA

From: A multipurpose immobilized biocatalyst with pectinase, xylanase and cellulase activities

Enzyme Temperature (°C) Half-life (t1/2) (minutes)
   Free CLEAs
Pectinase 50 17 180
Xylanase 60 22 82
Cellulase 70 32 91
  1. The half-life values were calculated by plotting ln(residual activity of enzyme) vs time [19]. In all the three cases, the activity at 0 minute was taken as 100%. The experiments were carried out in triplicate and the percentage error in each set of readings was within 3%.
