In cell transplantation, alginate immobilized cells
are utilized to act as the barrier between the host immune system and the transplanted cell .
The uricase activity of immobilized cells
had a value of KM and [V.sub.max], respectively of 2.86 mM and 0.0018 mA.
niger during the bioleaching process , and the removal of copper (II), manganese (II), zinc (II), nickel (II), iron (III), lead (II), and cadmium (II) by immobilized cells
The biota of all three beverages was subsequently supplemented with free and immobilized cells
Chromium (VI) removal by immobilized cells
of S7 and Chlorella was 4.5mg/g and 6.20mg/g, with reduction potential of 58% and 60%, respectively.
Production of glutamic acid using whole and immobilized cells
of Corynebacterium glutamicum.
Owing to these difficulties, immobilized cells
have been intensively analyzed lately for ethanol and levan production since they have advantages over conventional cell suspension.
In addition, the production of biosurfactants by immobilized cells
of Bacillus subtilis was well studied [13, 14].
Figure 4 illustrates the growth curves for free and immobilized cells
of Nannochloropsis sp.
Sample C clearly exhibits a higher fluorescence signal on immobilized cells
and lower background fluorescence.
The immobilized cells
were successfully reused for BDS over seven batch cycles but the uncoated free cells could be used only once.
Alginate immobilized cells
have been used in cell transplantation where it acts as the barrier between transplant (immobilized cell
) and host immune system.
