Applications of Enzymes in Daily Life


5.3 Applications of Enzymes in Daily Life
  • Immobilized enzymes are enzymes that combine with inert and insoluble substances to increase the resistance of enzymes towards change in factors such as pH and temperature.
  • The enzyme molecules will remain in the same position throughout the catalytic reaction and then be separated easily from its product.
Enzyme immobilization technology is used in various industrial application:
  • Digestive enzymes are used in the medical sector.
  • Amylase, lipase, protease, and cellulase in bio detergent.
  • Trypsin enzyme extracts fur from an animal hide to make leather products.
  • Lactase enzymes are used in lactose-free milk.
