The actions of cyclomaltodextrin glucanotransferases (CGTase; EC 2.4.1.19) from alkalophilic Bacillus sp. strain A2-5a (A2-5a CGTase), Bacillus macerans (Bmac CGTase), and Bacillus stearothermophilus (Bste CGTase) on amylose were investigated. All three enzymes produced large cyclic alpha-1,4-glucans (cycloamyloses) at the early stage of the reaction, but these were subsequently converted into smaller cycloamyloses. However, the rates of this conversion differed among the three enzymes. The… CONTINUE READING
