Glucose mother liquor (GML) is a byproduct of the glucose (G1) crystallization process. However, the presence of maltooligosaccharides and isomaltooligosaccharides within GML imposes limitations on its reutilization. Furthermore, the high concentration of G1 in GML leads to product inhibition of G1-producing enzymes. To overcome these challenges, a variant enzyme called V219A was developed through genetic mutation. The V219A exhibits the ability to hydrolyze both maltooligosaccharides and isomaltooligosaccharides. Product inhibition kinetics showed that the IC50 value of V219A was 7 times higher than that of the wild type. Upon subjecting primary, secondary, and tertiary GML to treatment with V219A, the G1 content exhibited notable increases, reaching 96.88, 95.70, and 90.46%, respectively. These significant findings not only establish an innovative and environmentally conscious approach for G1 production from GML but also provide a promising strategy for enzyme construction that caters to the demands of industrial-scale production.
