A Manometric Method for Measuring the Activity of the Cl. Welchii Lecithinase and a Description of Certain Properties of This Enzyme

Abstract

A manometric method has been described for measurement of the activity of Cl. welchii lecithinase. The method depends on displacement of carbon dioxide from a bicarbonate-carbon dioxide-buffered medium by the phosphorylcholine liberated during the enzymatic hydrolysis.
