Abstract

A novel mutant enzyme namely H43T CGTase can produce up to 39% γ-cyclodextrin (γ-CD) compared to the native enzyme which produces only 10% γ-CD. The effect of the reaction conditions on γ-CD production was studied using this mutant CGTase. The effects of substrate-buffer combination, starch pretreatment and concentration, pH, additives and finally the use of a debranching enzyme improved the γ-CD ratio further. The tapioca-acetate pair gave the highest conversion (16% conversion) among four types of starch and four buffer system combinations. Gelatinized starch was preferred compared to raw tapioca starch in producing a high percentage of γ-CD and conversion rate. Higher pH especially pH 8-9 led to a higher proportion of γ-CD, and was relatively more apparent when the concentration of starch was increased. Forty-six percent γ-CD was produced using 2.5% gelatinized tapioca starch at pH 8. Pullulanase enzyme was found to be useful in reducing the viscosity of tapioca starch paste thus increasing the efficiency of utilization of starch by CGTase by at least 20- to 30-fold. Up to 48% γ-CD can be produced when 4% pullulanase-pretreated tapioca starch was reacted with the CGTase mutant. It was also found that the supplementation of the reaction mixture with glucose, toluene, or cyclododecanone improved the γ-CD yield by 42.2, 46.4, 43.4, and 43.4%, respectively. All the parameters involved have been shown to affect the product specificity of the mutant H43T CGTase transglycosylation mechanism.
