The process conditions for immobilizing SOD from sheep blood by chitosan were explored. Chitosan dosage,
glutaraldehyde concentration, reaction time and pH were optimized by orthogonal array design and a comparative evaluation
of enzymatic properties was made between free and immobilized SOD. The immobilization conditions were optimized as
following: enzyme activity of 5219.3 U/mg, chitosan dosage of 0.25 g, glutaraldehyde concentration of 0.7%, reaction time
of 2 h and pH 5.6. Under the optimal process conditions, the highest activity of immobilized enzyme was obtained, and the
thermal stability was increased by 65.2% when compared with natural SOD. Meanwhile, the resistance to acid and alkali
demonstrated an increase of 48.4%, and Km was 0.18 mmol/L. Chitosan is useful to prepare high-performance immobilized
SOD from sheep blood.
