Savinase is a liquid enzyme preparation containing a protease suitable for use in high pH, low-temparature detergent preparations.
Savinase is produced by submerged fermentation of a genetically-modified microorganism. The enzyme protein is not itself modified. After fermentation, the enzyme is separated from the production organism and purified.
Savinase is used in detergent formulations to remove protein-based stains, e.g., grass, blood, mucous, faeces and various foods such as egg and gravy.
Savinase is an endo-protease of the serine type. It has a very broad substrate specificity. In other words, it can hydrolyse most peptide bonds within a protein molecule. Peptides are formed which are either dissolved or dispersed in the washing water.
Savinase is active throughout the pH range of interest for most detergent applications, namely pH 8-12 (optimally at pH 10). It functions between 20-60 °C, above which the activity falls rapidly. Its optimal temperature is 55 °C.
Some foods, e.g., eggs and potatoes, contain protease inhibitors that may inhibit Savinase activity.
Savinase should be stored at 3-5 °C.
