Characteristics of the lipolytic enzymes of cotton seeds

1. Three enzymes possessing lipolytic activity have been detected in dormant cotton seeds: a lipase active in acid media with a pH optimum of 4.75, a lipase active in alkaline media with a pH optimum of 8.75, and phospholipase D with a pH optimum of 5.6. 2. The localization of the enzymes in the seeds has been established and their properties (heat… CONTINUE READING
