The enzyme phytase has broad biotechnological applications, especially in the reduction of phytate, anti-nutritional factors that chelate essential minerals, in human and animal food. We investigated the enzymatic properties of β-propeller phytase (BPP) from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens DS11. Thermal refolding analysis demonstrated that BPP can remarkably restore its enzymatic activity in the presence of 5 mM Ca(2+) to 87% of its original activity after heating to 100°C and subsequent cooling, indicating that the enzyme requires Ca(2+) for appropriate refolding. Furthermore, pH-dependent kinetic studies showed that BPP required excess Ca(2+) for its enzymatic activity as the pH decreased, suggesting that the optimal Ca(2+)-phytate ratio for enzymatic catalysis depends on the pH value of the environment. Finally, we verified the practical application of BPP at two different pHs using soybean meal as a natural source of phytate. Compared to a commercial phytase, BPP efficiently hydrolyzed food phytate over neutral pH ranges.
