Surface immobilization of a protease through an inhibitor-derived affinity ligand: a bioactive surface with defensive properties against an inhibitor†
The concept of enzyme immobilization via an inhibitor-derived peptide was developed. This method of immobilization was shown to be advantageous over physical adsorption and covalent bonding in retaining the enzymatic activity. Moreover, the surface-immobilized enzyme exhibited resistance against its inhibitor due to the occupation of an inhibitor binding site on the enzyme.
