A comparative study of specificity of fucoidanases from marine microorganisms and invertebrates
The maximum degree of cleavage was achieved by the fucoidanase from the marine bacterium Pseudoalteromonas citrea KMM 3296 and the marine mollusk Littorina kurila.
Filamentous Marine Fungi as Producers of O-Glycosylhydrolases: β-1,3-Glucanase from Chaetomium indicum
Several promising strains capable of producing both individual enzymes and a set of enzymes for splitting carbohydrate-containing compound have been isolated.
The distribution of laminarinases in marine invertebrates
The crystalline styles of Bivalvia, such as Spisula sachalinensis and Mactra sulcataria, as well as digestive tracts of some Crustacea, showed the highest enzyme activity.
Glycosidases of marine organisms
This review discusses the catalytic properties, activity regulation, structure, and functions of O-glycoside hydrolases from marine organisms exemplified by endo-1→3-β-D-glucanases of marine
Distribution of O-Glycosylhydrolases in Marine Invertebrates. Enzymes of the Marine Mollusk Littorina kurila That Catalyze Fucoidan Transformation
It was found that α-L-fucosidase and arylsulfatase hydrolyzes synthetic substrates and cannot hydrolyze natural fucoidan, whereas fucoid hydrolase cleaves fucodan to produce sulfated oligosaccharides and fucose.
Brown seaweed protein as an inhibitor of marine mollusk endo-(1→3)-β-d-glucanases
Abstract Aqueous ethanol extracts from brown seaweed were found to contain substances inhibiting endo -(1→3)-β- d -glucanases, the digestive enzymes of marine mollusks. The inhibitors were detected
Alpha-galactosidase of the marine bacterium Pseudoalteromonas sp. KMM 701.
An alpha-galactosidase that inactivates the group specificity of B erythrocytes (group III) of human blood and does not affect A erythrocytes (group II) was isolated from the marine bacterium
Extracellular β-D-glucosidase of the Penicillium canescens marine fungus
Extracellular β-D-glucosidase was isolated in a homogeneous state from the Penicillium canescens marine fungus and had transglycosylation activity and hydrolysis of β-glycosidic bonds both in glycosides and in glucose disaccharides.
Distribution of Fucoidan Hydrolases and Some Glycosidases among Marine Invertebrates
Thirty-three species of marine invertebrates from the Sea of Japan were analyzed for contents of fucoidan hydrolases and some glycosidases, which may be useful in determining the structure offucoidans.
Cellulase of marine mollusc Littorina sp.
