Specific Activity: ~ 170 U/mg (40oC, pH 6.5 on Ceralpha reagent)
Unit Definition: One Unit of α-amylase activity is defined as the amount of enzyme required to release one μmole of p-nitrophenol from blocked p-nitrophenyl-maltoheptaoside per minute (in the presence of excess α-glucosidase) at pH 6.5 and 40oC.
Temperature Optima: 100oC
pH Optima: 7
Application examples: For use in Megazyme Total Starch Assay Kits (K-TSTA and K-TSHK).

High purity α-Amylase (Thermostable) (Bacillus sp.) for use in research, biochemical enzyme assays and in vitro diagnostic analysis. This enzyme is exceptionally thermostable and is the ideal choice for use in the total starch assay kits (K-TSTA and K-TSHK). It is considerably more thermostable than related enzymes such as the heat stable α-amylase (Bacillus licheniformisE-BLAAM). Please see the data sheet for experimental stability data.
