: The galactomannan-based gel from Cassia grandis seeds was used to incorporate Penicillium sp. UCP 1286 and commercial collagenases. Experiments were carried out according to a 23-full factorial design to identify the most significant parameters for the incorporation process. The pH of the incorporation solution (pHi), stirring time (t), and initial protein concentration in the crude extract (PCi) were selected as the three independent variables, and the efficiency of collagenase incorporation (E) and collagenolytic activity (CA) after 360 min as the responses. pHi and PCi showed positive statistically significant effects on E, while CA was positively influenced by pHi and t, but negatively by PCi. The fungi collagenase was released from the gel following a pseudo-Fickian behavior. Additionally, no <76 % of collagenase was efficiently incorporated into the gel retaining a high CA (32.5-69.8 U/mL). The obtained results for the commercial collagenase (E = 93.88 %, CA = 65.8 U/mL, and n = 0.10) demonstrated a pseudo-Fickian behavior similar to the fungi-collagenase. The results confirm the biotechnological potential of the gel as an efficient matrix for the incorporation of catalytic compounds; additionally, the incorporation of collagenases was achieved by retaining the proteases CA and releasing them in a controlled manner.

Abstract

: The galactomannan-based gel from Cassia grandis seeds was used to incorporate Penicillium sp. UCP 1286 and commercial collagenases. Experiments were carried out according to a 23-full factorial design to identify the most significant parameters for the incorporation process. The pH of the incorporation solution (pHi), stirring time (t), and initial protein concentration in the crude extract (PCi) were selected as the three independent variables, and the efficiency of collagenase incorporation (E) and collagenolytic activity (CA) after 360 min as the responses. pHi and PCi showed positive statistically significant effects on E, while CA was positively influenced by pHi and t, but negatively by PCi. The fungi collagenase was released from the gel following a pseudo-Fickian behavior. Additionally, no <76 % of collagenase was efficiently incorporated into the gel retaining a high CA (32.5-69.8 U/mL). The obtained results for the commercial collagenase (E = 93.88 %, CA = 65.8 U/mL, and n = 0.10) demonstrated a pseudo-Fickian behavior similar to the fungi-collagenase. The results confirm the biotechnological potential of the gel as an efficient matrix for the incorporation of catalytic compounds; additionally, the incorporation of collagenases was achieved by retaining the proteases CA and releasing them in a controlled manner.
