An extended lifespan of spermatozoa following artificial insemination (AI) can make the timing of insemination less critical, as previously demonstrated with immobilized spermatozoa that are gradually released from an alginate gel. The purpose was to examine the in vivo dissolution...

The membrane fraction of Gluconobacter oxydans IFO 3244, involving membrane-bound quinoprotein quinate dehydrogenase and 3-dehydroquinate dehydratase, was immobilized into Ca-alginate beads. The Ca-alginate-immobilized bacterial membrane catalyzed a sequential reaction of quinate oxidation to 3-dehydroquinate and its spontaneous conversion to 3-dehydroshikimate...
