Abstract: Optimization of immobilization conditions was carried out for covalent binding of Aureobasidium pullulans fructosyltransferase to a copolymer of butyl acrylate and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate using a glutaraldehyde method. It was found that the highest activity of the preparation could be obtained for the immobilization pH 6.0 and initial protein amount 8.5 g per dm3 of the carrier. Effects of the reaction pH, temperature, and initial sucrose concentration on the activity and stability of the preparation were analyzed. Further investigations involved storage stability and operational stability in a mechanically stirred-tank reactor.

Keywords: Aureobasidium pullulans - fructosyltransferase - fructooligosaccharides - immobilization - acrylic carrier
