Optimum pH of sweet potato amylase?
optimum pH of amylase from sweet potato is about 6.0
The optimum pH of a bacterial amylase depends on the species of bacterium. One review of different species found optima ranging from pH 4 to 11. To take one example, the α-amylase from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens (BAA) has an optimum pH of 6. Bacterial amylases are important in a number of industrial processes.
I'm doing my biology coursework on potato catalase, and did my experiment today. My experiments showed that the optimum pH for potato catalase was ph7 (well, i only tested ph1, ph7 and ph13) but by repeating it 3 times that's what my results showed. - Most websites say that the optimum pH is pH7, however the optimum is meant to be pH7.6
