Abstract

The recognition of microbial cells by the surface of polymers with oxyethylene units was investigated using the organism Trichoderma reesei, in which the surface was modified by the radiation polymerization method. The cells were recognized by their adhesion to the surface of the polymer giving a bioaffinity similar to cell fusion. The adhesion was affected by the molecular structure of the surface relating to the length of the oxyethylene unit, and enzyme productivity from the adhered cell walls was affected by the property of the polymer. © 1993.
