Reports from M.Q. Liu et al Highlight Recent Findings in Aspergillus (Immobilization of Aspergillus niger xylanase A on Fe3O4-coated chitosan magnetic nanoparticles for xylooligosaccharide preparation)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Data detailed on Aspergillus have been presented. According to news reporting from Hangzhou, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Aspergillus niger xylanase A (XylA) was immobilized onto Fe3O4-coated chitosan magnetic nanoparticles prepared by the layer-by-layer self-assembly approach."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "The Fe3O4-coated chitosan magnetic nanoparticles showed a high binding capacity of 162.2 mg.g(-1)-particles and a recovery activity of 56.5% for XylA The immobilized XylA showed improved thermostability and storage stability compared with free XylA. The immobilized XylA retained 87.5% activity after seven successive reactions by magnetic separation."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Xylotriose and xylohexaose were the main products released from birchwood xylan and wheat bran insoluble xylan by immobilized XylA, respectively."
