This study concerns the biochemical and physicochemical behaviour of liposomes as enzymatic bioreactors. The aim is to study a quantitative treatment of transport/kinetic phenomena in these bioreactors. The experimental system studied is the enzyme ascorbate oxidase (AAO) entrapped into dipalmitoyl-phosphatidylcholine unilamellar vesicles. The vesicles were prepared by two different methods, namely by controlled detergent dialysis technique or by reverse phase technique. A kinetic model which considers the presence of AAO both on the surface and in the aqueous core of the liposomes has been developed.

Abstract

This study concerns the biochemical and physicochemical behaviour of liposomes as enzymatic bioreactors. The aim is to study a quantitative treatment of transport/kinetic phenomena in these bioreactors. The experimental system studied is the enzyme ascorbate oxidase (AAO) entrapped into dipalmitoyl-phosphatidylcholine unilamellar vesicles. The vesicles were prepared by two different methods, namely by controlled detergent dialysis technique or by reverse phase technique. A kinetic model which considers the presence of AAO both on the surface and in the aqueous core of the liposomes has been developed.
