α‐Amylase catalyses the first step in the digestion of starch, a main source of carbohydrate in the human diet. Amylase present in human saliva was one of the first enzymes ever to be recognised but many puzzles remain about the molecular mechanisms involved in amylolysis of starch and even of the physiological role of the salivary amylase itself. Takamine recognized that the diastatic properties of the Aspergillus enzyme had potential medical applications. Parke, Davis & Company marketed Taka-Diastase as a digestive aid for the treatment of dyspepsia said to be due to the incomplete digestion of starch. Taka-Diastase was enormously successful and Takamine became a consultant to the company. The first enzyme produced industrially was taka-diastase (a fungal amylase) in , in United States. It was used as a pharmaceutical agent to cure digestive disorders. Further concentration of desired enzymes can be achieved by liquid-liquid extraction using polyethylene glycol or polyamines.

Sophie Louise Coppersmith has written: 'Further studies of the properties of the amylase of aspergillus oryzae or taka diastase' -- subject(s): Amylases, Aspergillus.   Feb 23 – Takamine applies for a patent for ‘Taka-Diastase’, now known as the amylase produced by Aspergillus oryzae. This is the first US patent for a microbial enzyme. July – Takamine contracts with Parke, Davis & co. of Detroit, Michigan to manufacture and market Taka-Diastase on a large commercial scale.   A. oryzae, for example, has been used in the Japanese food industry for the production of Sake, soy sauce, and miso for several centuries. One of the first industrial products that originated from A. oryzae was the diastatic enzyme Taka‐Diastase. This enzyme mix was the first microbial enzyme marketed in the United States. The results of spectroscopic investigations of reversible and irreversible enzyme binding to paper are reported, as well as the results of surface spectroscopic investigations of the extent to which such residues can be removed by rinsing. As much as 10% of the alpha-amylase present during a treatment under typical, non-stringent conditions may remain bound to a paper artifact after ethanol.

Further, Takamine recognized that the diastatic properties of the Aspergillus enzyme had potential medical applications. He licensed his enzyme preparation to the Parke-Davis company of Detroit, Michigan, under the brand name “Taka-diastase.” Parke-Davis aggressively marketed it as a digestive aid for the treatment of dyspepsia said to be. Remarkably one hundred and ten years after its introduction, Taka-diastase continues to be available as a popular digestive aid. Takamine's work on the extraction and commercialization of the diastatic enzymes of Aspergillus oryzae led, through his ties to Parke, Davis to even more ground breaking work on mammalian hormones.

In this study a silicon micro immobilised enzyme reactor (µIMER) has been applied for hydrolysis of maltoheptaose as a model maltodextrin and starch using immobilised α-amylase (from Aspergillus oryzae) and glycoamylase (from Aspergillus niger).

The influence of several parameters was investigated such as immobilisation chemistry, buffer. As diastase, amylase wa s the first enzy me to be discover ed and isolated by In Taka-amylase A, Aspergillus oryzae accelerate α-amylase production in a model solid-state fermentation. The first microbial enzyme for industrial use was prepared by Takamine (), who developed a process for the manufacture of amylase using a strain of Aspergillus oryzae.

The product, called “Taka-diastase,” is still used commercially. The highly humid climate of Japan facilitates the growth of various molds. Among these molds, Aspergillus oryzae is the most important and popular in Japan, and has been used as yellow-koji in producing many traditional fermented beverages and foods, such as Japanese sake, and soy sauce.

Taka-amylase A (TAA), a major enzyme produced by the mold, is well known worldwide to be a. Aspergillus oryzae is used to ferment sake, and Aspergillus wentii to process soybeans. 'Further studies of the properties of the amylase of aspergillus oryzae or taka diastase' -- subject(s.

α-Amylase from Aspergillus oryzae IFO was purified through acetone precipitation, Sephadex G and DEAE-cellulose columns sequentially for biochemical characterization.

A very high purity (fold of purification with 40% yield) of α-amylase with molecular weight kDa was obtained exploiting this three-step purification process. It covers their hazardous properties, classification and labelling, and information on how to use them safely.

Aspergillus oryzae (Taka-diastase) The properties of each α-amylase such as thermostability, pH profile, pH stability, and Ca-independency are important in the development of fermentation. Aspergillus oryzae LS1 and Aspergillus oryzae NRRL produced the highest level of amylase.

The other strains secreted lower levels of the enzyme during their growth on solid state media. Results also indicated that no clear correlation is observed between the enzymes activities and the amount of extracellular protein released in the fungal.

The cultural and nutrient requirements of Aspergillus niger for production of α-amylase in production media containing different pH, temperature, incubation period, metal ion concentrations, surfactants, carbon sources and nitrogen sources were quantified in present study.

ABSTRACT: Four fungal isolates from soil were screened for alpha amylase production and the isolate MJSU later identified as Aspergillus niger was found to have best activity among all the four isolates.

Growth of Aspergillus niger was found to be optimum at 28°C and pH SSF was carried out. The sequence of all three enzymes groups them in the GH13 sub-family 1 along with, for example, the amylase from Aspergillus oryzae (also known as TAKA amylase). However, unlike other fungal amylases, the enzymes in this study have been shown to have a broad pH profile with an optimum around pH 5 while retaining activity at pH 8.
