The Journal of Biocatalysis & Biotransformation (JBCBT) promotes rigorous research that makes a significant contribution in advancing knowledge for the catalytic activities of an enzyme. JBCBT includes all major themes pertaining to the series of chemical reactions that occur in living organisms to produce a compound.
 
Journal of Biocatalysis & Biotransformation is a subscription based journal that provides a range of options to purchase our articles and also permits unlimited Internet Access to complete Journal content. It accepts research, review papers, online letters to the editors & brief comments on previously published articles or other relevant findings in SciTechnol. Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by a group of peer review experts in the field and ensures that the published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate and reliable.

Isolation, Purification and Characterization of Fungal Extracellular L-Asparaginase from Mucor hiemalis

L-asparaginase is an enzyme that deaminates the free L-asparagine to yield aspartic acid and is used as an antileukemic agent. L-asparaginase producing fungus was screened from a local soil sample and identified as Mucor hiemalis based on morphological and microscopic characteristics.

Enhancing Thermal Stability of Immobilized Raw Starch Digesting Amylase (RSDA) Using Different Additives

Industrial and large scale applications of biocatalysts are often limited by lack of thermostability. Raw starch digesting amylase(RSDA) of Aspergillus carbonarius was immobilized on cyanogen bromide to facilitate mild covalent attachment. To improve thermal stability of immobilized and soluble RSDA different concentrations of sugar (trehalose) and polyols (polyethylene glycol, glycerol and mannitol) under varying conditions; temperature, pH and buffer ionic strength was studied.

Bioconversion of R-(+)- Limonene to α-Terpineol in Emulsion Systems

Bioconversions of limonene are traditionally carried out in aqueous solutions which are compatible with enzymes but not with limonene, thus leading to lower yield. This paper reports bioconversion of R-(+)-limonene to α-terpineol by fungi in emulsion systems. The emulsion was prepared by dispersing a mixture of decane and limonene into an aqueous phase containing potato dextrose broth (PDB) and Tween 80 surfactant.

Enhancing Thermal Stability of Immobilized Raw Starch Digesting Amylase (RSDA) Using Different Additives

The present work investigated the use of sorbitol as a soluble carbon source, in association with cellulose, to produce cellulases and xylanases in submerged cultures of Penicillium echinulatum 9A02S1. The production of cellulases and xylanases is difficult in submerged cultures, because the cellulose used as an inducing substrate is insoluble, which causes rheological difficulties, such as homogenization of the medium, aeration and agitation, factors that influence the oxygen transfer.
