The limit dextrinase from malted sorghum (sorghum vulgare)

D. Grahame Hardie, David J. Manners, David Yellowlees

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A limit dextrinase, free from contaminating carbohydrases, has been purified from malted sorghum flour. The enzyme readily hydrolysed a-limit dextrins having maltosyl or maltotriosyl side-chains, pullulan, and amylopectin ß-limit dextrin. Glycogen ß-limit dextrin and amylopectin were more slowly hydrolysed, the detection of the hydrolysis of amylopectin being dependent on enzyme concentration. No significant debranching of glycogen could be detected. © 1976.
