Proteins in Mesoporous Silicates

Mesoporous silicates (MPS) provide a means of immobilizing proteins and enzymes in a stable environment while retaining physiological function. A systematic methodology of assessing the potential of immobilising a given protein on to MPS has been developed from extensive characterization of the surface properties of the silicates and proteins. This approach can be potentially utilised in the design of a solid support for any protein.
