  • What Is The Best pH For Amylase Activity

    Amylase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of starch into sugar. Amylase activity is affected by pH; specifically, it is optimal at neutral pH levels (around 7). At lower pH levels, amylase activity decreases because the enzyme becomes denatured. At higher pH levels, amylase activity also decreases because the ionization of the amino acids … Read more
