In order to improve the stability of oxalate decarboxylase (Oxdc), response surface methodology (RSM), based on a four-factor three-level Box-Behnken central composite design was used to optimize the reaction conditions of oxalate decarboxylase (Oxdc) modified with monomethoxy polyethyleneglycol (mPEG5000). Four independent variables such as the ratio of mPEG-aldehyde to Oxdc, reaction time, temperature, and reaction pH were investigated in this work. The structure of modified Oxdc was identified by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, the stability of the modified Oxdc was also investigated. The optimal conditions were as follows: the mole ratio of mPEG-aldehyde to Oxdc of 1:47.6, time of 13.1 h, temperature at 29.9 °C, and the reaction pH of 5.3. Under optimal conditions, experimental modified rate (MR = 73.69%) and recovery rate (RR = 67.58%) were matched well with the predicted value (MR = 75.11%) and (RR = 69.17%). SDS-PAGE and FTIR analysis showed that mPEG was covalently bound to the Oxdc. Compared with native Oxdc, the modified Oxdc (mPEG-Oxdc) showed higher thermal stability and better tolerance to trypsin or different pH treatment. This work will provide a further theoretical reference for enzyme modification and conditional optimization.
