We report on inhibition of α-amylase activity by cellulose based on in vitro experiments. The presence of cellulose in the hydrolysing medium reduced the initial velocity of starch hydrolysis in a concentration dependent manner. α-Amylase adsorption to cellulose was reversible, attaining equilibrium within 30min of incubation, and showed a higher affinity at 37°C compared to 20 and 0°C. The adsorption was almost unchanged in the presence of maltose (2.5-20mM) but was hindered in the presence of… CONTINUE READING
