The ability of Aspergillus fumigatus L: -amino acid oxidase (L: -aao) to cause the resolution of racemic mixtures of DL: -amino acids was investigated with DL: -alanine, DL: -phenylalanine, DL: -tyrosine, and DL: -aspartic acid. A chiral column, Crownpak CR+ was used for the analysis of the amino acids. The enzyme was able to cause the resolution of the three DL: -amino acids resulting in the production of optically pure D: -alanine (100% resolution), D: -phenylalanine (80.2%), and D: -tyrosine (84.1%), respectively. The optically pure D: -amino acids have many uses and thus can be exploited industrially. This is the first report of the use of A. fumigatus L: -amino acid oxidase for racemic resolution of DL: -amino acids.
