The effects of an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), on the kinetic behavior in the hydrolysis of amylose with two bacterial alpha-amylases from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and B. licheniformis were studied. The catalytic rates of both amylases in the present study showed sigmoidal kinetics with increased concentration of added SDS; the rates were increased in the range below the critical micelle concentration (cmc) and then markedly decreased above the cmc. The catalytic rate of… CONTINUE READING
