However, considering the high cost and intricacy associated with the expression, isolation and purification of the recombinant enzyme for the screening of drug candidates, alternative methods that explore the recycling of enzymes become desirable. In this study, a new immobilized enzyme reactor (IMER) containing human recombinant MMP-9 enzyme was developed and characterized for the on-line screening of MMP-9 inhibitors. The MMP-9 IMER containing active unit of the enzyme (U = 0.08 μmol/min) on the disk was inserted into a HPLC system connected to a UV-vis detector for on-line chromatographic screening. The resulting conjugated enzyme was shown to be an active and stable catalyst for the hydrolysis of MMP-9 chromogenic thiopeptide substrate Ac-PLG-[2-mercapto-4-methyl-pentanoyl]-LG-OC2H5. The kinetics profile of the enzyme in IMER and free solution were determined and compared. Selected reversible MMP inhibitors, N-isobutyl-N-(4-methoxyphenylsulfonyl)-glycyl hydroxamic acid (NNGH), doxycycline and minocycline were further characterized using the MMP-9 IMER and free enzyme solution assays. Our system demonstrated applicability as a rapid and cost-effective screening tool for inhibitors of the MMP-9 enzyme. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
