The second one version of Immobilization of Enzymes and Cells serves as an replace in addition to a praise to the 1st variation. This quantity now comprises easy protocols for the immobilization of enzymes and cells that may be important for program at commercial scale, novel protocols for immobilization sooner or later, and new chemical reactors in a position to triumph over the restrictions of a few immobilized derivatives.

Their main objective was to stabilize enzyme crystals for X-ray diffraction studies, but they also showed that catalytic activity was retained. The use of cross-linked enzyme crystals (CLECs) as industrial biocatalysts was pioneered by scientists at Vertex Pharmaceuticals (7) and subsequently commercialized by Altus Biologics (8). The initial studies were performed with CLECs of thermolysin, of interest in the manufacture of aspartame, but the method was subsequently shown to be applicable to a broad range of enzymes (9–11).

Their role in biological processes and in health and disease has been extensively investigated. They have also been a key component in many ancient human activities, especially food processing, well before their nature or function was known (1). Enzymes have the ability to catalyze reactions under very mild conditions with a very high degree of substrate specificity, thus decreasing the formation of by-products. Among the reactions catalyzed are a number of very complex chemical transformations between biological macromolecules, which are not accessible to ordinary methods of organic chemistry.
