2 α-amylase isoenzymes were isolated from cotyledons of germinated broad bean seeds. The examination of the 2 isoenzymes isolated by column chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and sephadex showed that these isoenzymes have the same behaviour towards soluble starch, amylose, amylopectin, heavymetal ions, and high temperature, and differ only in their mol.wt and their electrophoretic mobility.
