Sequential assembly of protein and polyelectrolyte in mesoporous silica (MS) spheres leads to the formation of nanoporous protein particles (NPPs); the MS templates are removed after the fabrication process (see figure). The NPPs based on catalase show excellent biological activity, with up to 57 % of the activity retained. This strategy offers a novel and effective method of preparing bioactive NPPs of diverse composition, particle size, and shape.
