Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An acid protease from the broth of a 24-hour cultivated Aspergillus niger BCRC 32720 was purified to electrophoretical homogeneity by CM Sepharose FF and Sephacryl S-100 HR chromatographs. The specific activity, purification fold and yield were 23.29 kU/mg, 2.5 and 24.2%, respectively. Molecular mass (M) and N-terminal amino acid sequence were 47.5 kDa and SKGSAVTT, while the pH and temperature optima were at 2.5 and 50(o)C, respectively. It was stable at pH 2.0-4.0 or ≤40(o)C, activated by Fe(2+) and cysteine, but partial inhibited by phenylmethyl-sulfonyl fluoride and tosyllysine chloromethyl ketone and highly inhibited by Ag(+), Sn(2+), Fe(3+), Sb(3+) and pepstatin A. It was considered to be an aspartic protease.
