New Amidohydrolases Study Results from Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry Described (One-pot and one-step synthesis of bioactive urease/ZnFe?O? nanocomposites and their application in detection of urea)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A new study on Enzymes and Coenzymes is now available. According to news reporting from Beijing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "This communication describes a novel environmentally friendly method to prepare bioactive urease/ZnFe2O4 nanocomposites through a one-pot and one-step process. The synthetic procedure is triggered through a biological mineralization process of decomposition of urea catalyzed by urease."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, "During the growth of ZnFe2O4, urease molecules are immobilized by original ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles. As a consequence, the bioactive urease/ZnFe2O4 nanoparticle composites are assembled."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This simple route is expected to endow the bioactive nanocomposites with new properties for various interesting fields."
