We present polysaccharide-based nanoparticles able to associate and increase the catalytic activity of the maltose-binding MBP317-347 switch enzyme. Fluorescence quenching and molecular docking studies along with the partial resistance to increasing pH and ionic strength indicate that the increase in enzymatic activity is due to a specific interaction between the maltose binding pocket on MBP317-347 and alginate exposed on the surface of the nanoparticles. Finally, we show that the hybrid self co-assembled particles increase the half-life of MBP317-347 over six-fold at 37°C, thus reflecting their potential use as a macromolecular drug delivery system.
