We have analyzed surface diffusion properties of a variant of Thermomyces lanuginosa lipase (TLL) on hydrophilic silica and silica methylated with dichlorodimethylsilane (DDS) or octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS). For this study a novel method for analysis of diffusion on solid surfaces was developed. The method is based on fluorescence recovery after photobleaching using confocal microscopy. When a rectangular area of the sample was photobleached, fluorescence recovery could be analyzed as one-dimensional diffusion, resulting in simplified mathematical expressions for fitting the data. The method was initially tested by measuring bovine serum albumin diffusion on glass, which led to a diffusion coefficient in good correspondence to earlier reports. For the analysis of TLL diffusion, ellipsometry data of TLL adsorption were used to calibrate fluorescence intensity to surface density of lipase, enabling measurements of the diffusion coefficient at different surface densities. The average diffusion coefficient was calculated in two time intervals after adsorption. Mobile fraction and diffusion coefficient were lowest on the OTS surface, when extrapolated to infinite surface dilution. Moreover, the diffusion rate decreased with time on the hydrophobic surfaces. Our observations can be explained by the surface dependence on the distribution of orientations and conformations of adsorbed TLL, where the transition from the closed to the catalytically active open and more hydrophobic structure is important.
