From mycelial fungus Aspergillus niger 33-19 CNMN FD 02A cultivated on nutrient medium supplemented with [Co(DH)2(An)2]2[TiF6]∙3H2O coordination compound amylolytic preparation with total α-amylase activity of 40042U/g and a specific activity of 131.3U/mg proteins was obtained. Through gel filtration and ion exchange chromatography enzyme preparation was purified 7.8 fold with a yield of 13%. SDS-PAGE electrophoresis of purified α-amylase revealed 2 polypeptide bands of 66 and 40.5kDa identified as α-amylase isomorphs similar to previously obtained results on Aspergillus niger grown without any coordination compounds. [Co(DH)2(An)2]2[TiF6]∙3H2O increase the activity of non-purified amylolytic preparation, most likely due to the bonds formed between metal complex and some α-amylase radicals.
