|Title:||PURIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF EXTRACELLULAR AMYLOGLUCOSIDASE FROM CANDIDA SP AND ITS USE FOR THE PRODUCTION OF GLUCOMALTOSE SYRUP|
|Abstract:||An amylolytic enzyme from Candida sp. ATCC 90238 was purified and its enzymatic characteristics studied. The molecular weight of the purified enzyme was calculated as 120.000. Paper chromatograms of soluble starch hydrolysates produced by the enzyme indicated that it is an amyloglucosidase. Maltotriose and soluble starch were efficiently hydrolyzed to glucose whereas maltose was the least efficiently degraded substrate. The enzyme showed different characteristics when compared to amyloglucosidases derived from Aspergillus niger and Rhizopus sp., which completely hydrolyzed maltose. The Candida sp. enzyme is adequate for the production of glucomaltose syrup.|
