|摘要:||A fermentation approach utilizing Paenibacillus sp. to process chitin was developed. The chitin obtained from this process is called fermentation-processed chitin (FPC), and it was further investigated with chitinase affinity adsorption studies together with three other adsorbents, i.e. crab shell chitin, colloid chitin, and enzyme-processed chitin. The results showed that FPC had the highest chitinase adsorption capacity. Under 15 degrees C and pH 5.0, FPC exhibited an optimal chitinase adsorption capacity of 85.9 U/g, which was 61.9% higher than that of the colloidal chitin. With 0.02 M acetic acid as the eluent, a purification-fold of 10.3 with 97% chitinase recovery was obtained. The results of surface morphology studies indicated that the FPC surface was modified to a fiber-like structure with deep pores. In comparison with the surface morphology of enzyme-processed chitin and colloidal chitin, it is inferred that the enhanced adsorption capacity of FPC for chitinase is attributed to both the effects of chitinase hydrolysis and the bacterial modification.
