Abstract: A serine alkaline proteinase (EC from Bacillus sp. (ALPase I) was modified with the 2,4-dialdehyde derivative of clinical dextran (dialdehyde dextran). The modified preparation was purified using an ion-exchange column and gel filtration. The modified enzyme contained 75% carbohydrate by weight. The isoelectric point (pI) of ALPase I was converted from 8.2 to approximately 5.0 by this modification. The specific activity of the dextran-modified ALPase I was 56% of that of the native enzyme when milk …
