Exo-Polygalacturonase (Exo-PG) produced from a newly isolated
AUMC 4156 in fermentation media
containing sugar beet pulp as a sole carbon source was separated and purified by filtration, ammonium sulfate precipitation,
dialysis, cold acetone precipitation and sephadex G-200 gel filtration chromatography. The specific activity of the purified
enzyme increased from 0.88 to 5.75 U/ml, with an overall recovery rate of 23% of the crude enzyme. The optimum temperature
and PH values for the function of the purified enzyme were 45
C and 4.0, respectively. Thermal and P
stability of the purified
Exo- PG indicated that it was almost stable at 30
C and 40
C for up to 3.5 and 1.0 h respectively. Also, it was stable at acidic
PH (3-6) but its stability decreased at higher P
values. The Km and Vmax.values of Exo-PG were 1.0 mg/ml and 6.9 u mole
galacturonic acid/min/mg protein respectively.
