General description

α-Amylase, an extracellular enzyme, occurs in many natural sources, including animals, plants, and notably in microorganisms, such as various Bacillus species. α-Amylase is well-known as a heat-stable alkaline enzyme.

Application

α-Amylase, heat-stable has been used:
  • as part of the animal feed in the experimental design to study the effect of dietary fiber on reproductive performance of sows during gestation
  • as a supplement to prepare simulated small intestinal fluid (SSIF) and validate the in vitro digestibility by comparing with endogenous small intestinal fluid (ESIF) on different feeds in ducks
  • to perform an in vitro intestinal digestion using raspberry dietary fiber

Biochem/physiol Actions

α-Amylase breaks down starch into sugars, by hydrolysis of the a-(1→4) glucan linkages in polysaccharides of three or more a-(1→4) linked D-glucose units, without hydrolyzing the α-(1→6) bond. It results in the formation of oligosaccharides including maltose, glucose, and alpha limit dextrin.
