Detection of carboxymethyl cellulase activity in Acetobacter xylinum KU-1


, : Detection of carboxymethyl cellulase activity in Acetobacter xylinum KU-1. Bioscience Biotechnology & Biochemistry. 58(11): 2102-2103

We detected carboxymethyl cellulose activity in a crude extract of Acetobacter xylinum KU-1. The enzyme activity was detected when glycerol, D-fructose, D-mannitol, D-glucose, D-arabitol, D-sorbitol, or carboxymethyl cellulose was used as a carbon source. The optimum pH was found to be 4.0, while the optimum temperature was 50 degree C. The enzyme activity was inhibited characteristically by the addition of Hg-2+.
