Histidine-436 of a truncated Bacillus sp. strain TS-23 alpha-amylase (His(6)-tagged Delta NC) has been known to be responsible for thermostability of the enzyme. To understand further the structural role of this residue, site-directed mutagenesis was conducted to replace His-436 of His(6)-tagged Delta NC with aspartate, lysine, tyrosine or threonine. Starch-plate assay showed that all Escherichia coli M15 transformants conferring the mutated amylase genes retained the amylolytic activity. The over-expressed proteins have been purified to near homogeneity by nickel-chelate chromatography and the molecular mass of the purified enzymes was approximately 54 kDa. The specific activity for H436T was decreased by more than 56%, while H436D, H436K, and H436Y showed a higher activity to that of the wild-type enzyme. Although the mutations did not lead to a significant change in the K-m value, more than 66% increase in the value of catalytic efficiency (k(cat)/K-m) was observed in H436D, H436K, and H436Y. At 70 degrees C, H436D exhibited an increased half-life with respect to the wild-type enzyme.
