SnAaMA C.B.: Determination of 15-amylase in presence of a-amylase. Ind.l.Biochem.Biophys
Bacillus megaterium strain B6 producing extracellular β-amylase was isolated and grown in a medium supplemented with waste potato starch. It showed highest enzyme synthesis in the early stationary phase. The partially purified β-amylase had a temperature optimum at 60°C and a pH optimum at 6.9 and was not affected by Schardinger dextrins. These properties would allow its application in sugar industry.
