For this reason it is also known as glucose isomerase.
Gram & Bang [10] used fixed-bed reactor with immobilized glucose isomerase at pH ranging from 6 to 9.
As background, HFCS is prepared from a high-dextrose-equivalent corn starch hydrolysate by partial enzymatic conversion of glucose (dextrose) to fructose using an insoluble glucose isomerase enzyme preparation that is rendered insoluble, or fixed.
La obtencion del jarabe fructosado se realizo a 60[grados]C, en un reactor de columna con camisa para control de temperatura, con una relacion 1:20 (diametro:altura) y se usaron 2,0g de enzima glucosa izomerasa (Sweetzyme IT[R], Bagsvaerd, Denmark) con actividad de 160 IGIU/g, donde IGIU son las siglas de immobilized glucose isomerase units (Bandlish et al.
Their application is direct in different industries--food and feed (alpha amylase, glucose isomerase, cellulase, xylanase, pectinase, phytase), detergent (alkaline protease, cellulase), pulp and paper (xylanase, laccase, cellulase, pectinase), leather tanning (tannase) and pharmaceuticals (penicillin acylases, cephalosporin acylases, glutaryl 7-ACA acylases and D-amino acid oxidases) and waste treatment (laccases, tannasass).
Experimental studies have shown that many glycolytic enzymes bind cytoskeletal proteins reversibly including lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase (aldolase), glyceraldehydes 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), 3-phosphoglycerate kinase, glucose isomerase, phosphofructokinase, and pyruvate kinase (3,4) and that the interaction may be electrostatic in nature (3).
Amylase, glucoamylase and glucose isomerase have been used in corn wet milling to produce high fructose corn syrup.
Sixteen chapters cover subjects such as bioseparations using hollow fibres, extraction techniques, bioseparations with supercritical fluids, scale-up techniques, precipitation of biomolecules, foam-based separation of proteins, eletrophoresis, affinity chromotography, membrane separation, microfiltration in the drying process industry, whey protein isolation and fractionation using ion exchangers, separation processes in flavour manufacture, separation and purification processes for the recovery of industrial enzymes, and finally novel processes for the recovery of high-purity glucose isomerases.
