Özet

In this study, the extracellular thermostable alkaline protease out of A10 strain was purified 1.38-fold with 9.44% efficiency through the ammonium sulfate precipitation-dialysis and DE52 anion exchange chromatography methods. The molecular weight of the enzyme in question along with sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was determined to be approximately 40.55 kDa, whereas the optimum pH and temperature ratings were identified as 9.0 and 70 degrees C, respectively. It was seen that the enzyme had remained stable between pH 7.5-10.5 range, protecting more than 90% of its activity in the wake of 1 h incubation at 60-70 degrees C. It was also observed that the enzyme enhanced its activity in the presence of Mg2+, Mn2+, K+, while Fe2+, Ni2+, Zn2+, Ag+ and Co2+ decreased the activity. Ca2+, however, did not cause any change in the activity. The enzyme was seen to have been totally inhibited by phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, therefore, proved to be a serine alkaline protease.
