Abstract: Amylase from various sources was found to bind alginate in free solution. The alginate–enzyme complex could be precipitated with Ca2+. The enzyme activity could be recovered by dissolving the precipitate in 1 M maltose and precipitating alginate alone by addition of Ca2+. Based upon these observations, a-amylase from wheat germ was purified with 68-fold purification and 72% recovery. The molecular weight estimated by SDS–PAGE was 18 kDa. The method also worked equally well with a-amylase for the whole wheat seed. The latter enzyme could be purified 54- fold with 70% activity recovery. The molecular weight of this second enzyme was estimated to be 45 kDa by SDS–PAGE.
