enzyme stabilization

Maintaining the active conformation of an enzyme. This can be achieved in vitro by providing the appropriate chemical environment and cofactors. In some cases the criticality of these factors can be reduced by binding an antibody to the enzyme, in such a way that the active site of the enzyme is left unblocked.
