1. Solubility in NaCl increases

2. The activity increases

3. The specificity increases

4. The number of subunits increases

5. the epitope number increases


Expert Answer

Step 1

Enzyme purification and characterization is of great importance in obtaining information about structural and functional properties and predicting its applications. The purpose behind deciding the approach for purification is to attain the maximum possible yield of the enzyme with highest catalytic activity and maximum possible purity.

Step 2

A successful enzyme purification will result in increased catalytic activity of the enzyme which will help lower the activation energy of the reaction faster. Also, if no other protein contaminatio...
