Phytase

Phytase

A phytase (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate phosphohydrolase) is any type of phosphatase enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phytic acid (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate) – an indigestible, organic form of phosphorus that is found in grains and oil seeds – and releases a usable form of inorganic phosphorus.

Introduction

A phytase (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate phosphohydrolase) is any type of phosphatase enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of phytic acid (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate) – an indigestible, organic form of phosphorus that is found in grains and oil seeds – and releases a usable form of inorganic phosphorus. While phytases have been found to occur in animals, plants, fungi and bacteria, phytases have been most commonly detected and characterized from fungi.


Functions and Applications

1. Decomposing phytic acid of plant feed components

2. Decrease dosage of costly inorganic phosphorus in diets and reduce feed costs and using space-saving formula to ensure or improve effect of breeding.

3. Promoting utilization of minerals, protein, and other nutrients to improve production performance of animals.

4. Significantly improving biological utilization ratio of dietary phosphorus and reducing the discharge of inorganic phosphorus in animal waste emissions.
