ENZYMES

NATURE'S CATALYSTS, ACCELERATING LIFE'S PROCESSES

Enzymes are essential proteins that catalyse the breakdown and creation of biological compounds.

 

These proteins are critical for numerous cellular processes, such as metabolism, respiration, and the synthesis or breakdown of vital molecules. Enzymes dramatically increase reaction rates, boosting the efficiency of both biological and industrial processes.

Their catalytic action is fundamental in biotechnology advancements, including the development of cultured meat, alternative protein sources, and the creation of more efficient metabolic pathways. This underscores enzymes' pivotal role in enhancing both natural ecosystems and technological applications.

IMMOBAZYME'S DEXTRANASE

Dextranase is a remarkable enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of dextran gums, a common contaminant found in the sugar industry. 

 

Dextrans are compounds, produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides and other microorganisms in sugarcane and sugar beet, that increase viscosity and decrease industrial recovery. Dextranase, an α-1,6-d-glucan-6-glucanohydrolase, efficiently targets the bonding links in the dextran polysaccharide gum, breaking down the contaminant into simple sugar molecules.
