- 1 November 1985
The α-L-fucosidase showed a novel substrate specificity in that it could hydrolyze porcine mucin and blood group substances of human saliva besides nitrophenyl compounds as well as showing relatively stable in the pH range of 4-8 and up to 45°C on 10min incubation.
P‐15 Identification of Malassezia spp. isolated from a cat and cattle, including a new species, M. nana
