(enzyme, organic compound) An enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of sucrose into glucose and fructose (invert sugar), used by bees to produce honey and in the food industry to soften chocolate.

- The costs incurred for the processing of sucrose with invertase' could be considerably reduced with the introduction of immobilised ' invertases , by adopting technology similar to that developed for glucose isomerase.

- The disaccharide sucrose and the trisaccharide raffinose are both substrates of invertase'. '''Invertase is encoded by the ''SUC'' genes from which six unlinked loci have been identified (''SUC1-SUC5'', ''SUC7 ), which are dipersed through the yeast genome (Lampen, 1968; Ouwehand and van Wijk, 1972; Ottolenghi, 1971).

- Up-regulation of these invertases is a common response to infection (Hall and Williams, 2000).
- The methods used for the immobilization of fungal invertases include adsorption, covalent binding, cross-linking and entrapment (Uzun et al. 2011).
- Nelson and Griffin (1916) reported that invertase' was the first enzyme to be immobilized, and it was bound on charcoal and aluminium hydroxide. Subsequently, mant fungal ' invertases have been immobilized onto a variety of media.
