Partial characterization of chitin degrading enzymes from two euphausiids, Euphausia superba and Meganyctiphanes norvegica
P pH and temperature optima, thermal stability and kinetic properties of the two enzymes are strikingly similar in the polar E. superba versus the boreal euphausiid M. norvegica, suggesting a functional adaptation to a low temperature range in seawater.
Chitin Degrading Enzymes: Characteristics and Functions during Artemia Development
The results were taken as an indication for participation of chitin degrading enzymes, in addition to osmotic mechanisms, in the emergence process and a direct proof of this hypothesis is still lacking.
