Selectivity of methyl-fructoside synthesis with Β-fructofuranosidase
Enzyme synthesis of methyl fructoside was studied usingΒ-fructofuranosidase fromSacharomyces cerevisiae and sucrose and methanol as substrates. Taking into account the inhibition and deactivation effects of methanol on the enzyme, a system with 4.9M (20%, v/v) methanol was selected. At this alcohol level, 35% of sucrose is converted to fructoside at low or high substrate concentrations. The effect of enzyme concentration, pH, and temperature on both the synthesis and the hydrolysis of the fructoside was investigated. It was found that if the reaction proceeds at pH 6.0, 4‡C and/or 0.014 mg/mL (3 U/mL) of Β-fructofuranosidase at varying sucrose concentrations, methyl fructoside may be obtained with a minimum loss of the fructoside at the end of the reaction.
