Characterization of exo-(1,4)-alpha glucan lyase from red alga Gracilaria chorda. Activation, inactivation and the kinetic properties of the enzyme.

Abstract

Exo-(1,4)-alpha glucan lyase (GLase) was purified from a red alga Gracilaria chorda. The enzyme was activated 1.3-fold in the presence of Ca(2+) and Cl(-) ions. The ions also stabilized the enzyme increasing the temperature of its maximum activity from 45 degrees C to 50 degrees C. GLase was inactivated by chemical modification with carbodiimide and a… (More)
