beta -D-glucopyranosidase (PG, EC 188.8.131.52) is an enzyme of considerable importance in food technology for increasing the aroma of wines, musts, fruit juices and alcoholic beverages. In this research we have studied the stabilization of a commercial betaG preparation, by covalent immobilization of its carbohydrate moiety to an amine agarose gel. The findings showed total adsorption of the enzyme, previously purified [G. Spagna, D. Romagnoli, A. Martion, G. Bianchi, P.G. Pifferi, Enzyme Microb. Technol., 22 (1998) 298], on the matrix, its low reduction in activity and finally a high stabilization over time.
