The activities and properties of cellulases and xylanases associated with Phragmites communis leaves were followed during the course of their decomposition from autumn to summer in a seawater lake. Cellulases and xylanases of low optimum pH (4 or less) were detected on aerial dead leaves before submergence. These enzymes remained on the leaves immediately after submergence, but were replaced by enzymes with a higher optimum pH (about 5.5 to 6.5), the activity of which increased rapidly during… CONTINUE READING
