Heated Proteins are Still Active in a Functionalized Nanoporous Support

Abstract

Even under heated conditions, the nearly native conformation and activity of a protein can be hoarded in a functionalized nanoporous support via non-covalent interaction. Surprisingly, the protein released from the heated protein–nanoporous composite can maintain its nearly native conformation and activity, while free proteins are permanently denatured under the same treatment.
