Stablization of enzymes by chemical modifications
Enzymes are responsible for nearly all chemical reactions that occur in life-forms and are being used increasingly in industrial processes. Enzymes typically do not withstand temperatures much higher than the normal human body temperature. Ms Tananchai’s research focused on making enzymes more resistant to damage by heat. Methods were developed to create new chemical links within enzyme molecules to prevent them from unraveling at elevated temperatures.
