 Title    Aminoacylase from Aspergillus oryzae. Comparison with the Pig Kidney Enzyme  
 Abstract    Am inoacylase (EC from Aspergillus oryzae was purified from a com m ercially available crude material by heat treatment, precipitation by polyethyleneim ine and amm onium sulfate, gel chromatography and preparative disc-gel-electrophoresis. The purified product was hom ogenous as judged by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. SDS-gel electrophoresis, polyacrylam ide-gel-gradient electrophoresis, gel chromatography and amino acid analysis demonstrated the enzyme to be com posed o f two subunits with M r o f 36 600. The kinetic properties o f the enzyme were studied with chloroacetyl derivatives o f alanine, phenylalanine, methionine, leucine, norleucine and tryptophan. The pH optim um o f the acylase activity with chloroacetyl-alanine as substrate is at pH 8.5. Acyl derivatives o f hydrophobic am ino acids are preferred substrates. The enzyme has no dipeptidase activity. Am inoacylase is not inhibited by SH -blocking agents and no SH-groups could be detected with Ellman's reagent in the native and denatured enzyme. The enzyme activity is insensitive to phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride and N-a-/?-tosyl-L-lysine chlorom ethyl ketone. The microbial acylase is a zinc m etallo enzyme. M etal chelating agents are strong inhibitors; it is further inhibited by Cd2+, Mn2+, N i2+, C u2+ and activated by C o2+. The properties o f pig kidney and Aspergillus acylase are compared.
