Alpha-amylase was tested for ready biodegradability in the '28 -day Modified OECD Screening Test'. The test was performed according to OECD 301E and in compliance with GLP.
The concentration of DOC (Dissolved Organic Carbon) in the test flasks containing alpha-amylase decreased by an average of 95.0 %, 92.5 % and 93.8% within 7, 14 and 21 days of exposure, respectively. At the end of the test (day 28), alpha-amylase was biodegraded by an average of 99.0%. Consequently, alpha-amylase was found to be readily biodegradable.
The reference compound Aniline reached complete biodegradation during the first seven exposure days. At the end of the test (day 28) Aniline was readily biodegraded by an average of 95.1%.
Alpha-amylase was found to be readily biodegradable in the 'Modified OECD Screening Test' (OECD 301E).
Since the two enzymes belong to the same sub-subclass, similar results are expected for beta-amylase.
