 Title    Characterization of Proteases from Rhizopus Species after Growth on Soybean Protein  
 Abstract    Culture filtrates of different fungi of the genus R hizopus forming tem pe (i.e. traditional Indonesian food) were grown on a soybean protein-raffinose-phytate medium and investi­ gated for protease activity using soyprotein as substrate. A ll isolates belonging to the species R. oryzae, R. stolonifer, R. oligosporus, and R. m icrosporus var. chinensis, formed the well-known R hizopus-pepsin (aspartic proteinase, 35 kD, isoelectric points: 5.9, 5.0, <4) and an additional protease mainly active under alkaline conditions. The new protease (33 kD, iso­ electric points: variable and isolate specific) was purified approximately 300-fold and shown to be a serine protease (inhibitor studies). During fungal culture (1 2 -1 3 5 h) the aspartic proteinase is expressed first followed by the serine protease. Both proteases are insensitive to the soybean Kunitz and Bowman-Birk inhibitors. The best rate of soyprotein degradation is achieved by the coordinate action of both proteases at pH 6.5. The examined R hizopus isolates differ in the time course and intensity o f the expression o f the alkaline protease.
