ABSTRACT
Aminopropyl-functionalized SBA-15 mesoporous silica was used as a support to adsorb myoglobin. Then, in order to avoid the leakage of adsorbed myoglobin, lysozyme was covalently tethered to the internal and external surface of the mesoporous silica with glutaraldehyde as the coupling agent. The property of amino-functionalized mesoporous silica was characterized by N(2) adsorption-desorption and thermogravimetric (TG) analysis. The feature of the silica-based matrix before and after myoglobin adsorption was identified by fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and UV/VIS measurement. With o-dianisidine and H(2)O(2) as the substrate, the peroxidase activity of adsorbed myoglobin was determined. With Micrococus lysodeilicus as the substrate, the antibacterial activity of covalently tethered lysozyme was measured. Results demonstrated that the final product not only presented peroxidase activity of the myoglobin but yielded antibacterial activity of the lysozyme.

Mentions: The DTG profile of amino-functionalized mesoporous silica showed two peaks at 50 °C and 320 °C, respectively (Figure 3). The evaporation of physically adsorbed water gave rise to the weight loss at temperature lower than 100 °C. The decomposition of aminopropyl group of amino-functionalized mesoporous silica resulted in weight loss at 250 °C–500 °C [13]. Moreover, either the dehydroxylation of the Si-OH group or the elimination of the residual ethoxy group originated from incomplete hydrolysis of silicon ethoxide might lead to the slight weight loss above 500 °C [21–22].
