Abstract

In order to develop a biorernediation process to degrade formaldehyde gas from house interiors, a formaldehyde degradation filter using immobilized recombinant FDH protein was fabricated. As the results, we have successfully cloned the FDH gene into E.coli and extracted highly purified recombinant FDH protein of 12.4 kU/L. Using the extracted recombinant FDH protein and immobilizing it on a filter we have experimentally verified the degradation capability of such a filter for formaldehyde gas for biorernediation.
