The isolation and characterization of a specific chlorogenic acid esterase is described. The enzyme activity is measured by determination of the hydrolysis product caffeic acid. The enzyme had been concentrated by means of ultrafiltration and column-chromatography. The pH- and temperature optimum were 6.5 and 45 degrees C respectively. Divalent cations were(More)
In addition to our previous paper [1] further characteristics of the chlorogenic acid hydrolase are described. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis revealed only one band for the purified enzyme. Sodium dodecyl-sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis showed a molecular weight of 60 000, demonstrating four subunits of the enzyme (total molecular weight 240(More)
The characteristic features of an acetic acid esters hydrolyzing enzyme (acetylesterase, EC 3.1.1.16) are described. The pH- and temperature optimum were 7.0 and 40 degrees C respectively. The stability of the enzyme regarding different pH- and temperature conditions was investigated. The molecular weight of the acetylesterase could be determined to 160(More)
