Description of key information

Alpha-amylase has been tested for ready biodegradation in the '28 -day Modified OECD Screening Test' (OECD 301E) where it was found to be readily biodegradable. No further studies on biodegradation have been performed due to the ready biodegradation observed in the biodegradability test, the water solubility and the low logPow value indicating the low adsorption potential of alpha-amylase.
