In this research, lipase recovered from the skim latex of Hevea brasiliensis was immobilized via cross-linked enzyme aggregates (CLEA) technology, while supported by magnetic nanoparticles {MNPs), for properties enhancement. Hybrid immobilization may have affected the kinetic performances of the biocatalysts. The kinetic performance of both MNP supported and unsupported CLEA­lipase, were evaluated based on the Michaelis-Menten model using p-nitrophenyl palmitate as the substrate. Three different linearization model equations were used to compute the kinetic properties, Vmax and Km, and a hyperbolic regression was conducted with computer software. Based on the best fitted model, Vmax of MNP-CLEA-lipase, obtained from the Lineweaver-Burk plot (R2=0.9823), was 0.0023 µmol/min.mL, which is higher than CLEA-lipase (0.0015 µmol/min.mL), indicating it needs much higher substrate concentration to saturate the enzymatic sites to reach its maximum velocity. Km for MNP-CLEA-lipase was 0.4400 µmol, compared to 0.5188 µmol for CLEA-lipase, inferring that it has a higher affinity towards substrates, whereby its rate will approach V with lower substrate concentration. Overall, this research demonstrated that wasteful by-products such as skim latex can be converted to useful value-added biocatalyst. A better understanding of the kinetic parameters of this newly produced MNP immobilized biocatalyst is necessary for its further development.
